With the 2014 college basketball season’s end looming on the horizon, the Associated Press released their All-America teams on Monday and unless you’re a Wisconsin Badgers fan, you’re probably alright with the selections. None of Bo Ryan’s Badgers, despite their appearance in the Final Four, made the list. No, not even honorable mentions, which goes to show you how great a job he’s done in Madison
Three of the four teams in the Final Four have representatives on the list and to no one’s surprise, Creighton’s Doug McDermott was the only unanimous selection, receiving all 65 first-team votes followed by Duke’s freshman phenom Jabari Parker, who tallied 55 first-team votes.
New York and Canada had the most players represented on the three teams with three apiece while the American Athletic Conference had three members on the first-team.
Without further ado, here are the 2014 AP All-America teams.
