BIG EAST: Myles Powell, who skipped a chance to play in the NBA to become the first member of his family to earn a college degree, was selected the Big East Conference player of the year after leading Seton Hall to a three-way share of the regular-season title.

Villanova forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl was chosen the league’s freshman of the year and Greg McDermott of Creighton was voted the coach of the year.

Powell averaged 21 points, second most in the league and 17th best in the country in helping the Pirates earn a share of the program’s first regular-season championship since 1993. The guard from Trenton, New Jersey was at his best on the road, averaging 25.8 points in leading the Pirates (21-9) to a 7-2 mark in Big East play.

Robinson-Earl has been a consistent force with the Wildcats, averaging 10.5 points and 9.4 rebounds, which ranked fourth in the league.

Despite being picked to finish seventh in the preseason coaches’ poll, McDermott has led Creighton to a share of the regular-season title and the top seed in the Big East tournament. The Bluejays are 24-7 overall and ranked seventh nationally, which ties for the highest ranking in school history, also achieved under McDermott.
