Wall and Cousins named to AP All-America team

Kentucky's John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins are the first freshmen
teammates to be selected to The Associated Press' All-America team.
The other players on the team announced Monday are Ohio State
junior Evan Turner, Syracuse junior Wes Johnson and Villanova
senior Scottie Reynolds.
This is the third time in four years two freshmen were on the
team. Wall and Cousins are the ninth set of teammates. The last
All-America teammates were Duke's J.J. Redick and Shelden Williams
in 2006.
Turner received all but one first-team vote. The 6-foot-7 point
guard averaged 20.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 5.9 assists to lead
the voting by the 65-member national media panel. Voting was done
before the NCAA tournament.
