PJ Washington is a unanimous All-American

Washington achieves one of the highest honors one can earn in college basketball.

The Kentucky Wildcats have wrapped up their 2018-19 season, but more postseason honors and awards are still coming in.

PJ Washington has been named Third-Team All-American by the Associated Press. He was previously named Third-Team All-American by the United States Basketball Writers Association, Sporting News and the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

These are the four major NCAA-recognized All-America teams that the NCAA uses for its consensus All-America teams, which Washington is now part of for the 2018-19 college basketball season.

Washington was also named to the AP and Coaches’ All-SEC First Team. He was named SEC Player of the Week twice, an Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week once, and a Karl Malone Award finalist for the nation’s best power forward.

There’s no doubt that Washington is one of the best to ever come through Lexington in the John Calipari era, and he’ll be in contention for a lottery pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
