Newbill, Frazier Earn All-Big Ten Honors

Junior guard D.J. Newbill earned Second Team All-Big Ten honors while his senior backcourt counterpart Tim Frazier was named to the All-Big Ten Third team.

Newbill’s been unstoppable as of late, scoring at least 22 points in four of his last six games. He finished the regular season ranked second in the Big Ten in scoring, at 17.8 points per game. Newbill was an All-Big Ten honorable mention last season. He’s joined by Indiana’s Yogi Ferell, Michigan’s Caris LeVert, Michigan State’s Adreian Payne, and Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker. A prolific scorer, Newbill became one of four Nittany Lions to surpass 500 points in multiple seasons. With one more season ahead of him, he ranks 25th on Penn State’s all time leading scorers list.

Frazier, who led the league in assists (5.5) and finished ninth in scoring (15.5), is no stranger to all-conference accolades. Two years ago, he was a first-team media and second-team coaches selection. After missing the majority of the 2013 season with a ruptured Achilles, Frazier became only the second Big Ten player ever to record 1,000 points, 600 assists, and 500 rebounds in a career. Indiana’s Noah Vonleh, Iowa’s Aaron White, Ohio State’s LaQuinton Ross, and Ohio State’s Aaron Craft also received third team honors.

Eight schools were represented in the three All-Big Ten teams. Michigan’s Nik Stauskas was named the league’s player of the year.
