It is official. Here are the Michigan State Spartans who have won an award in the B1G:
-Big Ten Player of the Year
-1st Team All-Big Ten (Coaches & Media)
Draymond Green won this award over Jared Sullinger, rightfully so. Up until the last couple of games, it was pretty close. Overall, though, Draymond really pulled away from Sully.
-Big Ten Freshman of the Year Honorable Mention
Although it is unfortunate that Dawson tore his ACL (that is an understatement), he got some credit, being an honorable mention for FOY.
-3rd Team All-Big Ten
Not much there is to say about this one. Appling averaged over 10 points per game, getting this honor deservingly.
-Big Ten Coach of the Year
It is always awesome to see Izzo win this, but this award is really subjective, for lack of a better word. Beilein or Matta would have been just as deserving, coaching a team to a B1G Title. Nevertheless, Izzo won, and that is pretty awesome.
