Kansas junior forward Marcus Morris was named to the John R. Wooden All-American team, the Los Angeles Athletic Club announced Wednesday.
Morris, a 6-foot-9 junior from Philadelphia, led KU in scoring with a 17.2-point-per-game average.
The ten-player men’s team included Jimmer Fredette, BYU; Ben Hansbrough, Notre Dame; JaJuan Johnson, Purdue; Kawhi Leonard, San Diego State; Morris, Kansas; Jacob Pullen, Kansas State; Nolan Smith, Duke; Jared Sullinger, Ohio State; Kemba Walker, Connecticut; and Derrick Williams, Arizona.
Voters include nearly 1,000 members of the media who cover men’s and women’s college basketball. Those who voted on the men’s side selected and ranked 10 players.
Voters were asked to take into account performance during the regular season and postseason through the Elite Eight, as well as a player’s character and academic performance.
