Battle Named All-American

Penn State guard receives honorable-mention notice from the Associated Press. He is the sixth player in program history to be honored by the AP.

Penn State all-time leading scorer Talor Battle (Albany, N.Y.) has been named an honorable-mention All-American by the Associated Press becoming the first Nittany Lion honored by the AP since Pete Lisicky in 1997 and collecting just the sixth AP honor in program history.

Battle joins Jess Arnelle (1954 & 1955), whom he passed to become the Lions’ all-time leading scorer this season, Bob Weiss (1965), Carver Clinton (1966) and Lisicky (1997) as the only Lions ever to be honored on the post-season All-America teams compiled by the Associated Press. All earned honorable-mention honors. Arnelle was also a first-team selection by the Helm’s Foundation in 1954 and 1955.

Battle, who finished second in the Big Ten in scoring (20.2 ppg) and threes per game (3.0), also became the first Penn State player ever to earn multiple Big Ten first-team all-conference selections and multiple NABC and USBWA All-region selections this season.
