A trio of Buckeyes were honored the by league's coaches and media on Monday.

Though the season in some aspects left much to be desired, last night's palette cleansing 69-67 victory over Michigan State ended the 2013-2014 on a high note.

That trend continued Monday evening when Buckeyes senior point guard Aaron Craft, sophomore forward LaQuinton Ross, and junior guard Shannon Scott were all honored by the conference as part of the 2014 All-Big Ten teams.

Craft was named to the 2014 All-Big Ten Defensive Team, the Media's Second Team All-Big Ten Team, and the Coaches Third Team All-Big Ten Team to go along with his first team Academic All-America Status and 2014 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year Award. The senior averaged 2.6 steals this past season, a career high during a storied four years in Columbus. Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo said of Craft after yesterday's game "it was an honor to have coached against him."

Ross was honored as member of the Coaches' Third Team All-Big Ten Team and was also honorable mention by the media. The forward led the Buckeyes with 14.8 points per game to go along with 5.5 rebounds per game. He shot .449 from the field to go along with .390 from behind the arc.

Shannon Scott joins Craft of the 2014 All-Big Ten Defensive Team and was a typical sight guarding some of the opposing best offensive guards throughout conference play. He averaged 2.1 steals per game in 26.9 minutes per contest, coming off the bench for the final third of the season.

Next up for the Buckeyes is a Thursday afternoon game against the 12-seeded Purdue Boilermakers. The winner faces fourth-seeded Nebraska Friday at the same time.
