Dee Brown makes second team AA by the AP. Brown was the leading vote-getter on the second team. Brown was accompanied by senior Rod Carney of Memphis, Junior P.J. Tucker of Texas, and a pair of sophomores: Rudy Gray of UConn and Leon Powe of California.
Brown was Illinois' top scoring threat this past season. In his first three years he was known as the "one-man fastbreak", but this year he was called the "face of college hoops". Next year the Illini will have to replace not only his scoring, but also his leadership and willingness to win.
