For the first time in school history, the Wisconsin Badgers have two players on the same first-team All-Big Ten team.

Jordan Taylor and Jon Leuer were both named first-team All-Big Ten by the coaches, the conference announced Monday. Surprisingly, Taylor was not a unanimous selection.

The junior point guard was, however, a unanimous first-team pick by the media, but Jon Leuer fell to the second-team. Taylor was also named to the All-Defensive Team, which is only selected by the coaches.

Keaton Nankivil was an honorable mention by both the media and the coaches. The senior forward was also Wisconsin's Sportsmanship Award Honoree.

Purdue took home the two biggest honors as JaJuan Johnson was named Player of the Year and Matt Painter was named Coach of the Year by both the media and the coaches.
