Joining him on the All-Big Ten team are his teammate E’Twaun Moore, Michigan State’s Raymar Morgan, Wisconsin’s Marcus Landry and Michigan’s Manny Harris.

The full release from the Big Ten appears after the jump . . .

Here’s a well-reported piece by intern Jared Poertner that we couldn’t fit in the paper this week.
