Red Land High School graduate Jermaine Marshall earned All-Big Ten honorable mention honors for men's basketball on Monday.

Marshall is a junior at Penn State. His backcourt partner at PSU, D.J. Newbill, also earned All-Big Ten honorable mention recognition.

The second highest scoring tandem in the Big Ten this season and the highest scoring Nittany Lion duo since the 2000-01 season, Newbill finished fourth in scoring (16.4 ppg) and fourth in assists (4.2 apg) in Big Ten conference games while Marshall ranked fifth in scoring (16.2 ppg) and ninth in 3-pointers per game (2.0). The pair ranked behind only Michigan's Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway, Jr. (34.3 ppg) as the highest-scoring pair in the Big Ten. They are the highest-scoring pair of Nittany Lions since Joe Crispin (19.2 ppg) and Gyasi Cline-Heard (16.8 ppg) combined to produce 36.0 ppg while helping lead Penn State to the 2001 NCAA Sweet 16.

Marshall leads Penn State in steals (45) and 3-pointers (58) while ranking second in assists (2.4 apg) and third in rebounding (4.5 rpg).

Michigan point guard Trey Burke was named Big Ten player of the year by both a media panel and league coaches.

Burke and Indiana's Victor Oladipo are also considered national player of the year candidates. Indiana edged Michigan 72-71 on Sunday to win the outright conference title.

The media's All-Big Ten first team is Burke, Oladipo, Cody Zeller of Indiana and Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas of Ohio State. The coaches went with almost the same exact group, except Michigan's Tim Hardaway Jr. replaced Craft.

Both the media and the coaches named Gary Harris of Michigan State freshman of the year and Bo Ryan of Wisconsin coach of the year.
