Wisconsin 7-footer Frank Kaminsky was a unanimous selection when the Associated Press All-America college basketball teams were announced Monday.
The senior forward, whose Badgers are in the NCAA Tournament Final Four, averaged 18.2 points and 8 rebounds per game. He garnered all 65 votes from the panel.
Joining him on the first team are freshman center Jahlil Okafor of Duke; forward Willie Cauley-Stein of Kentucky; guard Jerian Grant of Notre Dame; and Ohio State’s D’Angelo Russell, a freshman guard.
Kaminsky and Wisconsin play Cauley-Stein’s Wildcats Saturday evening in Indianapolis in the second national semifinal.
Okafor, who received 64 votes, and the Blue Devils meet Michigan State in the first Final Four game.
The voting was done by the same 65-member media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. It was completed before the NCAA Tournament.
