Congrats to Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox as they are the first two Kentucky Wildcats awarded this season. They were both named on the USA Today All American teams.

The teams are as follows:

First Team:

Lonzo Ball- UCLA

Dillon Brooks- Oregon

Josh Hart- Villanova

Frank Mason III- Kansas

Caleb Swanigan- Purdue

Second Team:

Malik Monk- Kentucky

Josh Jackson- Kansas

Justin Jackson- North Carolina

Luke Kennard- Duke

Nigel Williams-Goss- Gonzaga

Third Team:

De’Aaron Fox- Kentucky

Ethan Happ- Wisconsin

Lauri Makkanen- Arizona

Monte Morris- Iowa State

Johnathan Motley- Baylor

No Markelle Fultz and no unanimous preseason player of the year Grayson Allen.

Congrats to Fox and Monk. It’s well deserved and I have a feeling they will have more awards coming their way.

Update: Malik Monk has also been named as a Second Team All American according to Sporting News. Unfortunately, no Fox this time.

First Team:

Lonzo Ball

Familiar names. Still no Grayson Allen. What a shame.
