AP All-American Teams Released; Frank Mason Unanimous Choice

FRANK MASON III

The Associated Press released their annual AP All-American Teams Tuesday. The first-team features two seniors, one junior, one sophomore and one freshman.

Kansas senior point guard Frank Mason III is the only unanimous choice and potentially the front-runner for the Player of the Year.

“My goals were always just to be successful as a team, do whatever I can do to make sure we’re successful and really change it at the defensive end and get after it,” Mason told the AP. “Yeah, that’s pretty cool to see my name alongside those great KU players, it means a lot to me, but nothing would be possible without my teammates and coaching staff.”

The AP All-American teams are selected by the 65-member national media panel (of which I am not a member) that votes on the AP Top 25 rankings. Votes are based on the regular season and conference tournaments. Statistics are through March 12.
