  Dee for Three!
Dee Brown earned a trifecta for his season performance this year. In Big Ten conference regular-season awards, Dee was placed on the first team and named player of the year by both the coaches and the media. To complete the trifecta, the coaches also named Brown the defensive player of the year.

Brown was far from the only member of the Illinois family that received accolades as the award list took on a decidely orange & blue flavor. Bruce Weber was named Big Ten Coach of the Year by the media and all five starters were included on the list of all-conference players. Brown was joined on both first teams by Luther Head and Deron Williams, while James Augustine was included on the third team and Roger Powell was honorable mention on both lists.

Oh yeah, and all three guards were also named Finalists for the Wooden Award.
