Penn State’s Carr named to B1G All-Tournament Team
NEW YORK – Penn State sophomore guard Tony Carr was named to the 2018 Big Ten Tournament All-Tournament team following the championship game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
The Philadelphia, Pa., native joins the Big Ten Tournament Most Valuable Player Moritz Wagner and Muhammed-Ali Abkur-Rahkman from Michigan, Carsen Edwards of Purdue and Corey Sanders of Rutgers on the 2018 edition of the Big Ten All-Tournament team.
Carr, who scored 25 points in back-to-back games against Northwestern and Ohio State, averaged 20.7 points over the three games. He is one of only six players in Big Ten Tournament history to have multiple 25-point games in a single Big Ten Tournament.
Penn State’s first sophomore to earn All-Big Ten Tournament honors, Carr earned first-team All-Big Ten honors from the coaches and the media. He leads the league in scoring at 19.9 points per game and claimed the conference scoring title at 20.1 points per game.
Five Nittany Lions have been selected as Big Ten All-Tournament in previous years. Joe Crispin was a two-time pick in 2000 and 2001. Jarrett Stephens was named to the 2001 team with Crispin. In 2011, Talor Battle earned All-Tournament honors and most recently, D.J. Newbill was voted to the five-man team in 2015.
