Penn State men's basketball coach Ed DeChellis was named Big Ten coach of the year today by conference media.

The Monaca native led the Lions to a 21-10 regular season, equalling a school record for regular-season wins, with a 10-8 conference record. The 10 Big Ten wins were the most for Penn State since 1995-96.

DeChellis is 78-102 overall at Penn State.

Michigan State's Tom Izzo was the coaches' pick as conference coach of the year.

Sophomore point guard Talor Battle, who led the Big Ten in regular-season scoring with a 17.3-point average, was named first-team all-conference by media and coaches.

Senior forward Jamelle Cornley (13.9 points, 6.2 rebounds) was a second team pick by the conference media and third team by the coaches.
