(UNDATED) - Purdue senior JaJuan Johnson was named first team All-America Monday by the United States Basketball Writers Association.
The Indianapolis native is the first Boilermaker to be named to the first team since Glenn Robinson in 1994.
The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 20.7 points in Big Ten play this season and was named conference player of the year and conference defensive player of the year last week.
Joining Johnson on the first team are Ohio State's Jared Sullinger, Brigham Young's Jimmer Fredette, Duke's Nolan Smith and Connecticut's Kemba Walker.
Notre Dame senior Ben Hansbrough was named to the second team.
