Oladipo joins McDermott, Burke and Porter on All-American Team

Creighton's Doug McDermott is an All-America for the second straight year while Trey Burke of Michigan and Otto Porter Jr. of Georgetown tied as the leading vote-getters for The Associated Press' first team.

Victor Oladipo of Indiana and Kelly Olynyk of Gonzaga are the other players on the team announced Monday.

Burke, the dynamic point guard, and Porter, the smooth, solid forward, both received 62 first-team votes and 319 points from the same 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25.

Oladipo, whose all-around play kept the Hoosiers in the No. 1 ranking longer than any other team this season, was third in the voting. McDermott, the efficient scorer, is the 51st repeat selection and the second in as many years following Jared Sullinger of Ohio State.

Olynyk, who became the country's best center, rounds out the first team.
