All-Americans: Jimmer, Nolan Smith and Kemba were obvious 1st team All-Americans. Jared Sullinger made the team, too. The last spot was something of a surprise – Purdue’s JaJuan Johnson. He had a nice season – 20 points, 8 rebounds, hit 15 three-pointers after making none the previous three years – but 1st team All-American? Really? Derrick Williams of Arizona had a better season, you just didn’t see him nearly as often because he’s in the Pac-10. Heck, I thought Marcus Morris of Kansas had a more impressive season than Johnson, too. Williams and Morris made 2nd team. It was an odd-year for All-Americans – not a lot of these guys were highly-touted recruits coming out of high school. [WSJ]
