PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -Georgetown's Roy Hibbert is the only repeat selection on the All-Big East Conference basketball team.
Hibbert was a unanimous first-team selection, along with Connecticut's A.J. Price, Louisville's David Padgett and Notre Dame's Luke Harangody, the league announced Monday. Each player helped his team earn a first-round bye in the Big East Tournament, which begins Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.
Others on the first team are Connecticut's Jeff Adrien, Notre Dame's Kyle McAlarney, Cincinnati's Deonta Vaughn, Pittsburgh's Sam Young, Seton Hall's Brian Laing, USF's Kentrell Gransberry and West Virginia's Joe Alexander.
Hibbert led Georgetown to the Big East regular-season crown. He averaged 13.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.4 blocked shots, while shooting 60 percent from the floor. The Hoyas (25-4, 15-3) are the top seed in the tournament.
Price was the floor general for Connecticut, averaging 14.7 points and 6.0 assists, second-best in the league. The Huskies are the No. 4 seed.
Padgett averaged 11.7 points and 4.5 rebounds for the second-seeded Cardinal. He shot 68.3 percent, a Big East record.
Harangody, a sophomore, averaged a league-leading 21.0 points and second-best 10.3 rebounds for the third-seeded Irish.
The Big East All-Rookie team is led by four unanimous selections: Georgetown's Austin Freeman, USF's Dominique Jones and Syracuse's Jonny Flynn and Donte Greene.
The conference coaches choose the all-league teams, and are not allowed to vote for players on their team.
