North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough and Michael
Beasley of Kansas State are unanimous picks on the Associated Press
All America team. Rounding out the first team are UCLA's Kevin
Love, D.J. Augustin of Texas and Chris Douglas-Roberts of Memphis.
The group includes no seniors and that is a first.

The AP first named an All America team after the 1947-48 season
and for the next six decades there was at least one member of the
senior class on every first team. Until this year.

Hansbrough is the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year
and Beasley the Big 12 player of the year and third freshman to
lead the country in rebounding. They were named on all 72 ballots
and received 360 points from the same national media panel that
selects the weekly Top 25.
