NCAA Basketball: Post Season Awards

NCAA ALL-AMERICANS

1st Team
Utah F Andrew Bogut: 20.6 ppg 12 rpg 2.4 apg 1.9 blk 64% FG
NBA scouts have known about Bogut before he stepped on campus at Utah, but he has delivered this year enough to merit a first overall selection in the NBA draft. The Aussie has the 7 foot frame with great instincts to go along with superior physical ability.

Kansas F Wayne Simien: 19.4 ppg 11.1 rpg 54% FG 83% FT
While Kansas came up short this year in the tournament, Simien was s beast inside all season. Simien will end his career in Kansas with 2 Big XII
championships and two trips to the Elite 8.

Wake Forest G Chris Paul: 14.9 ppg 6.6 apg 4.4 rpg 2.4 stl 49% 3 pt
Paul is perhaps the most complete guard in the country. He can create scoring opportunities at will and has a knack for hitting big shots. Coming off this stellar season, look for Paul to make an impact next year after being a high lottery selection.

Illinois G Deron Williams: 12.4 ppg 6.6 apg 3.7 rpg 37% 3 pt
Williams led the Big 10 in assists for the second straight season, and helped Illinois to a 32-1 regular season record and both Big 10 championships. He makes this team go, whether starting the break or handling the offense in the halfcourt set. Combine that with his improved shooting ability, and Williams is one of the most difficult back court matchups in the country.

Duke G JJ Redick: 22.6 ppg 3.1 rpg 2.6 apg 42% 3 pt 93% FT
Redick will leave Duke as the All-Time leader in NCAA free throw percentage, as well as establishing himself as one of the NCAA's best 3 point shooters. This year Redick added some slashing and driving ability to his game, which was a huge step up from his previous days as strictly a spot up shooter. It allowed him to draw contact and get to the line, where he is virtually automatic. JJ is also the heart and soul of a Duke team thats starters average 33 minutes played per game.

Player of the Year: Andrew Bogut
