For the first time in 29 years, we have a three-time first-team All-American.

On Monday morning, the AP announced their all-american teams, with Creighton’s Doug McDermott leading the way as the lone unanimous member. It was the third straight season that the nation’s leading scorer was named a first-team All-American. The last time that happened was back in 1985, when Wayman Tisdale and Patrick Ewing both won the award for a third straight season.

There were four seniors on the first team, including three from the AAC — Shabazz Napier of UConn, Cincinnati’s Sean Kilpatrick and Louisville guard Russ Smith. Duke freshman Jabari Parker rounded out the group.

It’s the exact same first team as the All-American team:

Here are the teams in full:


  • Doug McDermott, Creighton
  • Shabazz Napier, UConn
  • Russ Smith, Louisville
  • Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati
  • Jabari Parker, Duke


  • Nick Johnson, Arizona
  • Nik Stauskas, Michigan
  • T.J. Warren, N.C. State
  • Andrew Wiggins, Kansas
  • Melvin Ejim, Iowa State

    I feel that Xavier Thames is more deserving than Wiggins or Ejim. Was one of the best players in the country both offensively and defensively.

    doesn’t surprise me they missed Xavier Thames, he should have been first team but east coast bias would pick Nick Johnson who didn’t have even close to the year X did, but has the name they recognize. Sad how much better he was this year then the majority of these guys especially Parker and Wiggins

      Just to make sure I’m understanding your comment correctly: EAST COAST bias would pick Nick Johnson from ARIZONA over your favorite choice. I got that right, didn’t I?

      • natefisher21 - Mar 31, 2014 at 9:02 PM

        I’ll slow it down for you, I realize you’re from Florida. Only a east coast media member would have selected Johnson over Thames. East Coast Bias is referencing how media memebrs incorrectly precieve teams and players west of the mississippi. Someone who watched every Arizona and SDSU game this year would of had no trouble making the correct pick.

        Let me slow it down for you. BOTH teams are west of the Mississippi. Face it, it;s an idiotic statement.

    Doug McDermott made it!!?? Wow!

    So far Frank Kaminsky playing better than most of them.

  5. musketmaniac - Mar 31, 2014 at 3:24 PM

    only one player from the 5 major conferences.

    Anyone notice that no players in final 4 are listed? I saw another poll with different players. Cleanthony Early was a first teamer. McDermott is easily a majority choice, but the rest would be bias picks.

      chukychez1 – FYI – Napier plays for UConn who is in the final four

  7. shockertalk - Mar 31, 2014 at 8:14 PM

    Cleanthony Early of Wichita State scored 31 against Kentucky. Thats an all-American thing to do.
