Rosen named all-Ivy, Harvard’s Wright is POY

Penn junior point guard Zack Rosen was named first-team all-Ivy for the second straight season, becoming the 17th player in program history to earn the honor in consecutive years — but unlike last year, Rosen was not a unanimous selection in 2010-11.

Rosen led the Quakers, averaging 14.3 points per game and was second in the league in assists (6.2). He also led the Ancient Eight in minutes per game (37.4). He's joined on the all-Ivy rosters by senior Jack Eggleston, who was named an honorable mention. Eggleston finished 10th in the league in scoring (13.6 ppg) and third in rebounding (7.9 per game). As captains, both players brought intangibles to the team that are likely surpassed by statistics.

Earning the league's top honor of Player of the Year is Harvard's Keith Wright, who finished third in the League in scoring (14.9) and had a league leading .588 field goal percentage. He was also second in rebounds per game (8.5).

Brown freshman Sean McGonagill received the Rookie of the Year award.

The rest of the all-Ivy honors are as follows:

  1. I'm surprised McGonagill was a unanimous Rookie of the Year selection. His average was less than .5 points a game better than Cartwright and Rivard, and played on a worse team than both of those. Not saying he didn't deserve to win it, but still would've expected at least Rivard to get some votes.

  2. Can't help but wonder if Eggleston would have been at least second-team had he not called that timeout during the first Princeton game.

  3. I hope the coaches voting are basing these things off more than one play. But from the praise that Sydney Johnson heaped on Jack after the game last night, I'm surprised he didn't get higher accolades this year.
