Turner selected First Team Associated Press All-American

compiled from staff, wire reports and Ohio State Athletics

The 2009-2010 Associated Press All-American basketball was announced on Monday and it includes two freshman.

Kentucky’s John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins join Ohio State junior Evan Turner, Syracuse junior Wes Johnson and Villanova senior Scottie Reynolds.

With the 2008-2009 season passing and no freshman being selected, Wall and Cousins are the ninth set of teammates to be selected and the first since Duke’s J.J. Redick and Shelden Williams in 2006.

The 6’4 Wall averaged 16.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.4 assists.

The 6″11 Cousins became one of the nation’s top big men and was the only player selected to the team who averaged a  double-double with 15.3 points and 10.1 rebounds. Wall and Cousins helped the Wildcats reach number 1 for one week.

Ohio State's Evan Turner (osu)

As a 6’7 point guard, Turner is considered to be one of the best all-around players in recent seasons, received all but one first-team vote from the 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25.  Turner missed six games after breaking bones in his back when he fell after a dunk in December.  The Buckeyes went .500 without him and then went on to the Big Ten title when he returned. Says Turner, “I’m definitely honored to be a part of a team like that and to be recognized. It’s really cool.”

Wall received 62 votes, while Johnson had 45, Reynolds 32 and Cousins 26 in voting conducted before the NCAA tournament.

Johnson, a transfer from Iowa State became an instant star with Syracuse this season.  The 6’7 forward averaged 16.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in leading the Orange to its number 1 ranking since 1990.

The 6’2 Reynolds averaged 18.5 points and shot 40 percent from 3-point range in becoming Villanova’s go-to-player with several spectacular second-half efforts.

James Anderson of Oklahoma State was sixth in the balloting with 27 votes and was joined on the second team by Sherron Collins of Kansas, Greivis Vasquez of Maryland, Jon Scheyer of Duke and Da’Sean Butler of West Virginia.

The third team was Greg Monroe of Georgetown, Cole Aldrich of Kansas, Damion James from Texas, Luke Harangody from Notre Dame and Darington Hobson of New Mexico.
