Local Kids Named All-Conference - II

Hilton Armstrong

N.Y., N.J. and Conn. natives have been named to four of six BCS' all-conference teams (ACC later): Big East, Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC with the bulk (logically) in the Big East. UConn's Hilton Armstrong is that league's Defensive Player of the Year and Eric Ferguson is the SEC Sixth Man of the Year.

Note: This story incorrectly stated that the BCS included seven so-called power conferences. Now, all 11 Division I-A conferences are included.
