UA Hoops: Nick Johnson named AP All-American

TUCSON - Arizona Wildcat guard Nick Johnson was the leading vote-getter on the second team on Monday when the Associated Press announced its 2014 college basketball All-Americans.

Johnson, who has also been named a first-team All-American by the Sporting News, the NABC and the USBWA, led Arizona in scoring and ranked second on the team in assists and steals.

The Gilbert, AZ native reached the 20-point mark a team-high 11 times on the year and had one double-double. He became the 48th member of Arizona's 1,000-point club in mid-January, scoring in double figures in 35 of 38 games this season. His 618 points on the season marked the second-best single-season total in Miller's tenure.

Johnson has also been named Pac-12 Player of the Year, first-team All-Pac-12, Pac-12 All-Defensive Team, USBWA District IX Player of the Year and first-team USBWA All-District 20 in recognition of his efforts. He was the Most Outstanding Player at the NIT Season Tip-Off and a member of the Pac-12 Tournament All-Tournament Team, and has also been named a finalist for the Wooden Award, Naismith Trophy and Robertson Trophy.

In addition to helping lead Arizona to the regular-season Pac-12 title and the Elite Eight, Johnson helped Arizona top the AP poll for a program-record eight-consecutive weeks this season. This year's UA team posted the best start (21-0) and longest winning streak in program history, and ranked second on the program's single-season wins list.
