Sporting News released their 2017 College Basketball All-Americans Monday morning.

Oklahoma State point guard Jawun Evans was named to the third team, along with Notre Dame PF Bonzie Colson, Washington guard Markelle Fultz, Wisconsin center Ethan Happ, and Arizona PF Lauri Markkanen.

Evans averaged 18.7 ppg, 6.3 apg and 1.9 spg for the Cowboys this season.

There were three other Big 12 players named to the All-American teams:

  • Frank Mason III - only unanimous first-team selection
  • Josh Jackson - second-team selection
  • Johnathan Motley - second-team selection

Evans is the first OSU player to be selected to an All-American team since Marcus Smart (2012-13), and first point guard to be selected since John Lucas III (2003-04).

Congratulations to Jawun Evans as he prepares to face Iowa State in the Big 12 tournament.
