Two Syracuse players set for all-star game

Syracuse running back Antwon Bailey and offensive guard Andrew Tiller were selected to play in the Casino Del Sol All-Star Game, set for Jan. 16 in Tucson, Ariz.

Bailey rushed for 1,051 yards this season, becoming the 15th player in school history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season. His 2,144 career yards on the ground ranks him 16th all-time at Syracuse, and he is one of two Big East running backs with six 100-yard games this season.

Tiller started 25 of 35 career games at Syracuse, including all 12 this season. He has blocked for 1,000-yard rushers in each of the past two seasons, including Bailey this year. Both Bailey and Tiller were first-team Big East selections.
