Marquette pair lead All-Big East team



 PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Marquette seniors Jae Crowder and Darius Johnson-Odom are among the six players who have been chosen first-team All-Big East.

   Connecticut sophomore Jeremy Lamb, the only non-senior, was joined Sunday on the first team by Jason Clark of Georgetown, Kevin Jones of West Virginia and Kris Joseph of conference champion Syracuse.

   Crowder, who averaged 18.0 points and 8.3 rebounds in conference play, was the only unanimous pick in the voting by the league's coaches.

   Jones led the conference in scoring (19.0) and rebounding (10.9).

   The league's player of the year, who will come from the first team, will be announced Tuesday, along with coach of the year and rookie of the year.
