Men's Honors:

Big 5 First Team

* Jerome Allen (Pennsylvania)

Bernard Blunt (St. Joseph's)

Eddie Jones (Temple)

Matt Maloney (Pennsylvania)

** Aaron McKie (Temple)

* Jerome Allen returned Penn to national prominence in the 1990s as the Quakers went 85-24 in his career, including 51-5 in Ivy League play.  A three-time all-Big Five player and two-time Ivy Player of the Year, Allen's name is all over the Quaker record book.  He became the first Quaker to score 1,500 career points since 1978 (he stands fourth on the all-time list with 1,518).  His 505 career assists are more than 100 more than second place and his 166 steals are also a school standard.  His 178 career three-pointers are second only to Houston Rockets point guard Matt Maloney, who was his backcourt mate during Penn's stunning run.  Allen, a second-round draft pick of the Timberwolves, also spearheaded the Quakers' first reappearance into the AP poll since the 1970s.  Penn was ranked 24th in 1994 and 21st in 1995.

** McKie was a deep threat for the Owls, averaging 20.6 points a game while shooting 39 percent beyond the arc.
