AP All-American First Team Doesn't Include KU Basketball's Marcus Morris

The Associated Press has released college basketball's All-American first team and Kansas Jayhawks basketball's Marcus Morris is nowhere to be found. The KU big man did not make the first team after landing on the Big 12 first-team as well as winning the conference's player of the year. 

There were three seniors that made the team including BYU's Jimmer Fredette, Duke's Nolan Smith and Purdue's JuJuan Johnson. UConn junior Kemba Walker as on the list as was Ohio State freshman Jared Sullinger.

Fredette was awarded the United States Basketball Writers National Player of the Year.

I'm a little surprised Morris wasn't on there as I thought he was the best player on the first or second best team much of the year. Morris finished the year averaging 17.2 points and 7.6 boards per game. He was a constant much of the year for KU who had a deep team.

The guys that did make it, though, were all well deserving. Fredette lit the college basketball world on fire as one of the best scorers we remember in quite some time. We'd be remiss not to mention UConn's Walker when talking about scorers as he exploded through the Big East tournament leading UConn to the final four.
