2020-21 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Postseason Honors Announced

CHICAGO and CHAMPAIGN, Illinois/March 12, 2021

ILLINI GUYS, a multi-media organization and the operator of IlliniGuys.com, announces its 2020-21 Big Ten Men’s Basketball honors today.

The honorees were selected by the IlliniGuys.com staff with more than a century of collective experience in basketball and sports media. “We did a deep dive into each selected player’s individual performance throughout the season as well as that player’s impact on his team’s success,” said ILLINI GUYS co-founder Brad Sturdy.

“We are confident that our list represents the most objective and in-depth analysis of the best players and coaching staff in Big Ten this season,” stated Kedric Prince, IlliniGuys.com’s Director of Basketball. “We developed our own ‘performance metric’ point system to evaluate and rank these players and coaches. Unlike postseason team selections by other organizations, we chose to select the five best players for each team regardless of their positions,” added ILLINI GUYS co-founder Mike Cagley.
