Miles, Petteway Honored by Big Ten Media, Coaches

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

The Huskers keep on riding the wave of success as this evening the Big Ten announced their all conference teams, players and coach of the year.

Leading the way for the Huskers was Terran Petteway who was named to the first team All-Big Ten as voted on by members of the media that cover the conference.  Petteway led the conference in scoring at 18 points per game. The sophomore led the charge for the Huskers all season long as they mounted their suprise run up the Big Ten standings after starting 0-4. Petteway is the first Husker to be named to the All-Conference first team since Aleks Maric was named to the Big XII first team in 2008.

The man in charge of that team, however was Tim Miles. Miles was named Big Ten coach of the year by his fellow coaches. Miles, in his second year has the Huskers on the brink of their first NCAA tournament berth since 1998 with 19-11 record and a fourth place finish in the conference, their best finish in the standings since that same '98 season and their most conference wins in a since 1965. Miles is the first Nebraska coach to be named Coach of the Year since Danny Nee was given the honor in 1991.

Miles, Petteway and the rest of the Huskers head next to Indianapolis where they will take on the winner of the Ohio St. vs. Purdue game on Friday afternoon. Tip-off will be sometime around 1:30pm.
