Julian Champagnie is now part of this exclusive club. The junior forward became only the seventh St. John’s player to be named to the Big East’s first-team on Sunday.

Champagnie, averaging 18.9 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 1.2 blocks, was also a first-team pick last season. He will be joined on the first team by Seton Hall senior Jared Rhoden, Villanova’s Collin Gillespie, Connecticut duo Adama Sanogo and RJ Cole, and Marquette’s Justin Lewis. The Player of the Year, announced Wednesday before the start of the Big East tournament at The Garden, will be one of those six players. Gillespie was the only unanimous choice.

The big surprise was that regular-season champion Providence hadn’t named a player to the first-team. The brothers’ Jared Bynum and Nate Watson made up the second team. Also on the second team were Villanova’s Justin Moore, Creighton’s Ryan Hawkins and DePaul’s Javon Freeman-Liberty. St. John’s second point guard Posh Alexander was an honorable mention selection.
