PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Big 5 has announced its All-Big 5 men's basketball teams for the 2010-11 season, and a pair of Penn players were honored. Junior guard Zack Rosen is a first-team selection, while senior Jack Eggleston earned second-team recognition.

Rosen finished the season averaging a team-leading 14.3 points per game, and in Ivy play he finished 12th among Ancient Eight players in scoring (13.1 ppg) and was second in assists per game (6.2) while averaging a League-high 37.4 minutes per contest. Rosen finished in the top five in three other offensive categories. He ended the season with 152 assists, a career best and fourth in a single season at Penn. Rosen also surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his career this season.

Eggleston ended a stellar four-year career averaging 13.2 points and a team-high 8.0 rebounds per game this season. In Ivy play, he was third among Ivy players in rebounds per game (7.9) and 10th in scoring (13.6 ppg) while averaging 36.9 minutes per game which was third among all Ivy League players. Eggleston led Penn in rebounding in 24 of its 28 games, and he finished his career with exactly 700 boards to become the first player to reach that total since Mark Zoller in 2007. Eggleston ended his career with 1,248 points, tied for 17th all-time at Penn with Matt Maloney.

Rosen -- a second-team All-Big 5 selection last year -- joined a pair of Temple players (Lavoy Allen and Ramone Moore) and a pair of Villanova players (Corey Fisher, Corey Stokes) on the first team. The second team included Eggleston, Temple's Juan Fernandez, Carl Jones of Saint Joseph's, La Salle's Aaric Murray and Villanova's Maalik Wayns.

In addition to earning first-team All-Big 5, Temple's Lavoy Allen has been voted the Philadelphia Big 5's Outstanding Player of the Year by the Herb Good Basketball Club. He will receive the Robert V. Geasey Trophy at the Philadelphia Big 5 banquet on Monday, April 25. This year's event will be held in the Fox-Gittis Room at the Liacouras Center on Temple's campus. Tickets for the banquet can be reserved by contacting Al Shrier at Temple University (215-651-1821 or ashrier5@temple.edu).

Rosen and Eggleston were also All-District picks by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), and were the Quakers' All-Ivy recipients this season as well.

Penn finished the season 13-15 under head coach Jerome Allen in his first full season coaching the team.
