EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State men's golf senior Matthew Moseley was selected to the second-team All-Big Ten team, as announced by the conference office on Wednesday. Moseley earns postseason accolades from the Big Ten for the first time in his career, and is the first Spartan since 2010 to be named to an all-conference team.
"Being a member of the All-Big Ten team is a great honor for Matthew," said Spartan head coach Casey Lubahn. "The league has a lot of great players and it is a testament to his hard work and great attitude that he has received this recognition. I am proud of how far he has come and look forward to his season hopefully continuing in the coming weeks.
"I truly believe that Matthew's best golf is still ahead of him and look forward to watching him continue to climb the ranks as a player. He is truly a pleasure to coach."
Moseley was the top Spartan all season, leading the team in eight of the 11 stroke play events. He has posted a 73.94 scoring average so far this season, which leads the team and is currently tied for 14th on the MSU single-season list.
Overall, Moseley has three top-5 finishes, including winning the Colleton River Collegiate this season, while also posting eight top-25 showings, capped by a tie for 15th at last weekend's Big Ten Championship. At the beginning of the spring, he led MSU with a 3-1 record, helping the Spartans' to a runner-up finish at the Big Ten Match Play Championship.
For his career, Moseley is seventh on the Michigan State scoring list with a 74.87 stroke average. He has totaled eight top-10 and 17 top-20 finishes.
In addition, senior Dave Ellis was MSU's recipient of the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award.
