The Michigan State Spartans hadn't won the Big Ten Tournament since way back in 2000, so it makes sense that the guy who was named the MVP of that tournament for the Spartans would also earn himself more accolades. Draymond did just that when the USBWA named Green an All-American. Green had 12 points and nine rebounds during the Spartans' four point win over Ohio State in order to clinch that Big Ten title.

Green is also the player who hit the huge three pointer at the end to seal the game by giving the Spartans a 67-62 lead as the final minutes were ticking down off the clock. Not a bad way to enter the NCAA Tournament.

Green is joined by Kentucky's Anthony Davis, Creighton's Doug McDermott, Kansas' Thomas Robinson and Ohio State's Jared Sullinger as the five players to win the award from the USBWA.
