    Default Pitt's Gibbs named second-team all-Big East

    Pitt's Gibbs named second-team all-Big East
    Sunday, March 07, 2010
    By Ray Fittipaldo, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Pitt sophomore Ashton Gibbs was named second-team all-Big East today. Gibbs, a 6-foot-2 guard who is averaging 16.2 points per game and shooting 40.4 percent from 3-point range, was the only Pitt player to earn first-, second- or third-team honors.

    It is the first time since 2004 that a Pitt player was not named first-team all-conference.

    Gibbs is the 13th Pitt player to earn second-team all- Big East honors and the first since Levance Fields in 2007.

    The Big East will announce the rest of its postseason awards Monday and Tuesday. Gibbs is a candidate for the Big East's most improved player award. Senior guard Jermaine Dixon is up for defensive player of the year and the league's sportsmanship award. Junior forward Gilbert Brown is a candidate for sixth man of the year. And Jamie Dixon is a candidate for coach of the year.

    No. 17 Pitt (24-7, 13-5) completed the regular season Saturday night with an 83-54 victory against Rutgers. The Panthers will play a quarterfinal round game in the Big East tournament Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. They will play No. 7 seed Notre Dame, No. 10 seed Seton Hall or No. 15 seed Providence. The opponent will not be determined until Wednesday night.
