Check out BTN.com's 2014 All-Big Ten Teams
BTN released the 2014 All-Big Ten Teams and individual award winners on #BTNLive’s All-Conference Selection Special on Monday night. Before the teams were made official, BTN.com offered their teams and superlative winners. See them in this post.
Here’s how this worked: BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart, Brent Yarina, Sean Merriman and the Big Ten Geeks Josh Reed and Mike Portscheller all listed their teams and award winners. Players received three points for every first-team distinction, two for second-team and one for first-team. Totals were added up, and the five highest vote-getters formed the first team, and so on.
