Yarina: My All-Big Ten noncon teams

And just like that, it’s time for the Big Ten season to tip. It was a highly successful nonconference season, with the Big Ten owning the national polls. We have even more to look forward in the coming months, however, as many feel this could be one of the better conference races in recent history. Check out my All-Big Ten Nonconference Teams in this post.

D.J. Newbill and Jermaine Marshall Penn State. Newbill changed position to the point to lead Penn State to a 4 game win streak.

Where is Branden Dawson? He isn’t 1st or 2nd but he’s got to be at least 3rd team. Replace him for Aaron White and you got it all right. Yes, white averages more pts but Branden Dawson is the whole package: skills and athleticism.
