Brooks named to All-Big Ten 2nd Team, Miller snubbed in Coach of the Year voting

The Big Ten released its All-Conference teams Monday, with Indiana freshman Larryn Brooks voted to the Second Team by both the league’s coaches and media.

Brooks, who leads Big Ten freshmen with a program-record 461 points, was also named to the league’s All-Freshman Team by the coaches.

“I am excited for Larryn that she has been recognized by the coaches and media for an outstanding freshman year,” IU coach Curt Miller said in a statement. “She is a dynamic player that has the ability to score in multiple ways. She has broken numerous freshman records at IU but would be the first to credit her teammates for her success. She has energized our fan base and will continue to be an important piece of our building process.”

The Kentucky native has set additional freshman records for made free throws in a season (113), points in a game (37 vs. Virginia Tech), 3-pointers in a game (seven) and assists in a game (10, twice).

Brooks is only the fifth freshman in IU history to be named to the Big Ten All-Freshman Team and the first since Whitney Thomas in 2006.

The conference also recognized 12 Sportsmanship Award honorees, with senior center Simone Deloach representing IU.

Miller, who has guided the Hoosiers to their highest win total (18) since the 2008-09 season, was snubbed by both the coaches and media. Big Ten coaches selected Nebraska’s Connie Yori as Coach of the Year, while the media vote went to Penn State’s Coquese Washington.

Nebraska’s Jordan Hooper was voted Big Ten Player of the Year by the coaches and Penn State’s Maggie Lucas took the award from the media.
