Jaren Sina and Fuquan Edwin have been named to the all-Big East Rookie Team and all-Big East Second Team, respectively. The complete all-Big East teams can be seen here.

Sina, a freshman combo guard from Gill St. Bernard's (N.J.), has averaged 6.2 ppg, 2.4 apg, has a 104.4 ORtg, and has shot 37.6 (35/93) from three-point range. Jaren Sina has scored in double figures three out of his last six games while tallying 14 assists during the same span. Sina scored a season high 17 against NJIT and scored 12 points twice (Xavier; DePaul) in Big East league play.

Senior wing Fuquan Edwin (14.7 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 2.8 spg, 34 3pt% 42/121) led Seton Hall in scoring and steals. Edwin currently sits third in the nation in steal percentage (5.8%, the percentage of opponent possessions he records a steal) and has the 14th-most steals (74) in the nation. Edwin missed five games due to both an ankle injury minutes into the LIU-Brooklyn game and a bruised thumb at DePaul, an injury he is just recovering from.

Fuquan Edwin (1596 pts per ESPN) sits 13th on the all-time Seton Hall scoring list and needs 26 more points to pass John Morton (1621 pts.; 1985-89) on that list. Edwin would likely require two Big East Tournament games to achieve this. Edwin has recorded 292 steals, the most of any Seton Hall player ever. Fu has finished 3rd in the nation in steal percentage twice in his Seton Hall career.

Sina and Edwin were deadly when they were able to combine on Seton Hall breaks in transition in their only season together at Seton Hall.

UPDATE 3/10 (10:15 am): Fuquan Edwin has become the first Pirate to be named Big East Defensive Player of the Year since Jerry Walker in 1993.
