Indiana senior guard Yogi Ferrell unanimously named first-team All-Big Ten

Ferrell continues to add accolades, the latest being a unanimous selection to the all-conference first team.

IU senior guard Yogi Ferrell added more honors to his decorated career Monday night as he was recognized as a All-Big Ten first team player. 

The Park Tudor grad was one of three unanimous first team selections by the coaches and media. Ferrell concluded the regular season leading IU in scoring and assists at 17.1 points per game and 5.5 points per game. He became the program's career assist leader this year and has 607 so far this season. 

Against Maryland last Sunday, Ferrell became the first ever player to record more than 1,900 points, 600 assists and 400 rebounds in Big Ten conference history, breaking the previous record of 1,800 points, 600 assists and 400 rebounds set by Illinois' Dee Brown.

Ferrell was also named to the conference's All-Defensive Team. 

His teammates also earned significant recognition on Monday night as well.

Grad transfer forward Max Bielfedlt was named the Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year by coaches. Bielfeldt is the second IU player to earn the award and first since Will Sheehey in 2013. 

IU freshman center Thomas Bryant was unanimously selected by coaches to the conference's all-freshman team. 

Both Bryant and junior forward Troy Williams were named third team All-Big Ten. Williams has averaged 13 points and 6 rebounds per game so far this season.
