PRINCETON, N.J. - Syracuse forward Wesley Johnson has been named the Big East's Player of the year.
Johnson beat Villanova guard Scottie Reynolds to the honor. Reynolds had been tipped by some people - okay, many people - to win the prize after he was the only unanimous selection to the All-Big East First Team.
(What's that, you say? Something about the headline? It looks right to me.)
Orange coach Jim Boeheim was named the conference coach of the year, Cincinnati's Lance Stephenson was named the top rookie and Notre Dame's Tim Abromaitis was named the top scholar athlete.
