For the second consecutive season, Creighton forward Doug McDermott has been named a first-team All-American by the United States Basketball Writers Association.
McDermott is the 75th man to earn multiple first-team accolades in the USBWA’s history, and first since Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger in 2011 and 2012. McDermott is the first player from a “non-BCS” league to earn repeat first-team honors since UNLV star Larry Johnson in 1990 and 1991.
