Doug McDermott made Creighton history last season when he was selected as the school’s first player on the AP All-America team. Now he’s done it again.

The 6-foot-8 junior forward, the second-leading scorer in Division I, was a repeat selection and the 51st player to earn the honor in consecutive seasons after averaging 23.1 points and 7.5 rebounds while shooting 56.1 percent from the field and 49.7 percent from 3-point range.

Trey Burke of Michigan and Otto Porter Jr. of Georgetown tied as the leading vote-getters for first team, while Victor Oladipo of Indiana and Kelly Olynyk of Gonzaga were the others selected.
