NCAA: Creighton's Doug McDermott first three-time AP All-American since Tisdale, Ewing Published: March 31, 2014

Doug McDermott spent his senior season passing a lot of big names on the career scoring list. He is now among some very select company.

The Creighton forward is the first player since Wayman Tisdale of OU and Patrick Ewing of Georgetown in the 1980s to be named to the Associated Press All-America team three times. McDermott joins a prestigious class that includes Tisdale, Ewing, Oscar Robinson, Lew Alcindor, Pete Maravich and Bill Walton, among others.

The Big 12 landed two players on the second team in Andrew Wiggins of Kansas and Melvin Ejim of Iowa State.

Other first-team selections include Russ Smith (Louisville), Shabazz Napier (Connecticut), Sean Kilpatrick (Cincinnati) and Jabari Parker (Duke). Parker is this year's Tisdale Award winner as the nation's top freshman.
