Indiana senior forward Trayce Jackson-Davis added to his historic season on Tuesday as he was named an AP First-Team All-American. He became the first Indiana player to receive AP First-Team All-American honors since 2013 (Victor Oladipo).

Jackson-Davis enters the NCAA Tournament averaging 20.8 points, 10.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.7 blocks per game this season. He was also a First-Team All-American by The Sporting News earlier this month.

En route to receiving First-Team honors, he was named a five-time Big Ten Player of the Week winner — pushing his career total to eight, which is the most by any player in Indiana program history.

Jackson-Davis broke the all-time Indiana rebound and blocks record this season, now sitting atop the charts in both categories in Indiana all-time program history. He currently ranks third in program history in career points and double-doubles. Earlier this season, he became the first player in Indiana history to reach 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in a career.

Jackson-Davis was named a unanimous selection for the All-Big Ten First-Team earlier this month as well.

Other watch lists and teams that he is currently on are: Wooden Award National Player of the Year semifinalist, Naismith Trophy Defensive Player of the Year semifinalist, Karl Malone Award Finalist and Oscar Robertson Trophy Late Season Watch List.
