Freshman forward Henry Ellenson of the Marquette University men’s basketball program was one of five players named to the United States Basketball Writers Association Freshman All-America Team, the organization announced Wednesday afternoon.
The 6-11, 245-pounder was named BIG EAST Freshman of the Year (unanimous selection) on March 9 and has claimed several regional and national accolades already in 2015-16.
Ellenson was named All-BIG EAST First Team on March 6 and also claimed a spot on the BIG EAST All-Freshman Team (unanimous selection). Ellenson was the first freshman on the first team since Carmelo Anthony of Syracuse in 2002-03 and his eight weekly league accolades in 2015-16 matched the third-best total (Troy Murphy, Notre Dame – 1998-99) in conference history.
