OFFICIAL BIG EAST RELEASE

Marquette men's basketball senior guard Matt Carlino and freshman guard Duane Wilson have each earned all-conference accolades, the league office announced Sunday afternoon.

Carlino was named All-BIG EAST Second Team and Wilson earned a spot on the BIG EAST All-Rookie Team.

Carlino, who played his first three seasons at BYU, is in his first year with the Golden Eagles. In BIG EAST games, he is ranked among the league leaders in scoring (4th, 17.2 ppg.), free throw percentage (5th, .830), steals (3rd, 1,9 spg.), 3-point field goals made (1st, 3.4) and 3-point field goal percentage (10th, .400).

"Matt made an immediate impact in our program and it's impressive that he was able to make a name for himself among the league coaches in just one season," head coach Steve Wojciechowski said. "He was obviously our primary option on offense, which makes his production even more impressive considering the attention he received defensively."

Wilson is the league's top freshman scorer (14th, 12.3 ppg.) in conference games and is second overall (15th, 12.1 ppg.) for the entire season. He is also one of the BIG EAST's top 3-point shooters and is ranked among Marquette's all-time leaders in terms of freshmen-year production.

"Duane has quietly put together one of the top freshman seasons in school history. He has proven himself to be an explosive scorer and it's exciting to know he still has more time to develop his game and contribute to the program's success."

Marquette has now had at least one player earn all-league accolades every season since MU began conference affiliation in 1990.
