Indiana men’s basketball senior forward Trayce Jackson-Davis was awarded First Team All-American honors by Sporting News and The Field of 68, the publications announced Tuesday morning.
Jackson-Davis is the first Hoosier to earn First Team All-American honors since Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller did so in 2013.
Jackson-Davis averaged a career-high 20.5 points, 11 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.8 blocks during the regular season. He led the Hoosiers to a 21-10 overall record and a third-place finish in Big Ten play, despite beginning the conference season 1-4.
Among the first-team selections, Purdue junior center Zach Edey was the only other Big Ten player to earn recognition from both publications. Penn State senior guard Jalen Pickett was named to the second team and Iowa junior forward Kris Murray to the third team by Sporting News.
Indiana will play its next game Friday night in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament against the winner of Maryland vs. Nebraska/Minnesota.
