Kemba Walker was the first Big East player taken in the 2011 NBA Draft. It didn't take long for a second one to be drafted. This time, it was one of the bright stars on a struggling team that was selected. 

Providence's Marshon Brooks was selected with the 25th pick by the Boston Celtics. Last season, Brooks carried the Friars and for most of the season was the lone bright spot in an otherwise tough year that ultimately resulted in Keno Davis' departure as head coach. Brooks averaged an impressive 24.6 points and seven rebounds per game. His biggest strength is that he can absolutely score the basketball and can get his own shot. At 6'5, he's got more than enough size to play the two in the NBA and should be an asset right away. 

Head over to Celtics Blog to get full coverage on their newest player. Congrats to Marshon Brooks, the second Big East pick in the 2011 NBA Draft! Keep in mind that there are reports that Brooks could be on the move via trade to the New Jersey Nets. If so, drop by Nets Daily and congratulate them.
