D.J. Newbill Named To All-Big Ten Tournament Team

After a strong showing in the Big Ten tournament, D.J. Newbill was named to the All-Big Ten tournament team, earning the distinction after averaging 21 points per game in the Nittany Lions three-game tournament run.

Newbill was the only one on the five-man team that did not play in the Big Ten Championship after a season and career-ending loss against Purdue, joining Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky and Nigel Hayes and Michigan State’s Branden Dawson and Travis Trice.

Newbill is only the fourth player in Penn State history to make the All-Big Ten tournament team, and the first since Talor Battle took the Nittany Lions to the Big Ten Championship game and the NCAA Tournament in 2011. Newbill led the way to Penn State’s two tournament victories, ensuring the Nittany Lions’ first winning season since 2011, and the fifth winning season since 2000.

The Big Ten’s leading scorer was left off of the All-Big Ten first team, claiming his second straight All-Big Ten Second team selection. Many believed that Newbill, arguably the best player in school history, was well-deserving of the first team honor. The perpetually underrated Newbill will be missed dearly next season, as he (hopefully) pursues a career in the NBA after graduation.
