PHILADELPHIA - The postseason honors keep rolling in for Penn senior guard Zack Rosen. On Thursday, he was named a second-team ECAC Division I All-Star.
Rosen is the only Ivy Leaguer named to the ECAC's Division I All-Star teams. The ECAC first team consisted of Lehigh's C.J. McCollum, Iona's Scott Machado, West Virginia's Kevin Jones, Andrew Nicholson at St. Bonaventure, and Syracuse's Kris Joseph. Rosen was joined on the second team by Connecticut's Jeremy Lamb, Virginia's Mike Scott, Iona's Mike Glover, and Bucknell's Mike Muscala. McCollum was the ECAC Player of the Year, while Duke's Austin Rivers was the ECAC Rookie of the Year.
Rosen will graduate as the Penn men's basketball program's all-time leader in assists (588), games started (115) and minutes played (4,198), and his point total (1,723) is third behind only Ernie Beck and Ugonna Onyekwe. This season, Rosen set program single-season marks for assists (173), starts (33) and minutes played (1,259), while his point total (602) was the best since Tony Price scored 633 points in 1978-79. Rosen also hit 75 three-point field goals in 2011-12, the seventh-best single-season total in program history.
Rosen's college career came to an end on Monday, as Penn fell to Butler in a CBI quarterfinal at The Palestra. The Quakers finished the season 20-13 overall, their best win total since 2006-07. The Red and Blue finished the regular season with an 11-3 Ivy League record, finishing in second place behind Harvard.
