Draymond Green Selected To Associated Press All-American First Team

Draymond Green had a fantastic season with the Michigan State Spartans, as has been the case throughout his entire career, earning multiple honors and generally keeping the Spartans competitive and, at times, dominant. According to the official website, Green has been named to the Associated Press' All-America team on Monday. He joins former Spartans like Earvin "Magic Johnson, Shawn Respert and Mateen Cleaves, as just the fourth player from the school to receiver the honor.

Green joins Anthony Davis of Kentucky, Doug McDermott of Creighton, Thomas Robinson from Kansas and Jared Sullinger from Ohio State. According to the official website, Green has always been named a First-Team All-American by the United States Basketball Writers Association and The Sporting News, among others.

Green will likely take to the next NBA Draft, though it will be tough for the Spartans to see him go. His last game with the team was against the Louisville Cardinals in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament. He had 13 points and 16 rebounds. He's MSU's all-time leading rebounder with 1,096, and is certainly deserving of the All-American honors.
