Illini Win Big Ten Honors

This came out last week but it’s important enough to mention.   Three Illinois players were chosen to the All-Big Ten team.  One made the second team and two made the third team.

Here is the full list of the All-Big Ten teams

 Ryan Snowden

Outfielder Ryan Snowden, who led the Illini in hitting (.352), runs (53) and doubles (20) was chosen to the second team.  Snowden hails from nearby Matoon, IL. 

 Ryan Hastings

Secondbaseman Ryan Hastings, who also hails from Matoon, was chosen to the third team.  Hastings hit .327 with 33 rbis. 

 Shawn Roof

Also chosen to the third team was shortstop Shawn Roof.  He hit .337 with a .429 OBP. 

This is the first award for all three players.  More important for the Illini, Roof and Snowden are Juniors and Hastings is a Sophomore so we can expect them back next year for more.
