Bryce Cotton Named Associated Press All American Honorable Mention

Bryce Cotton became the first Friar to be named to an AP All American team since Marshon Brooks was a 3rd team All American in 2011. For the record, the voting occured on Selection Sunday so Cotton’s amazing performance against North Carolina in the NCAA Tournament was not considered by the voters. Doug McDermott (1st team) was the only Big East player to be named on the AP All American teams/honorable mentions.

Here is the full list:
