Stillwater, Okla. — James Anderson has been named a second-team All-American by the Associated Press, it was announced today. The Cowboy junior garnered 27 first-team votes and received the sixth-most points in the voting.
Anderson is the 12th player in Oklahoma State history to garner All-America status from the Associated Press, and the first since Joey Graham was named a third-team pick in 2005.
Anderson becomes the first Cowboy to be named a second-team selection by the AP since 1992 when Byron Houston received the same honor. This marks just the fourth time since the Associated Press began naming All-America teams in 1948 that OSU has had a second-team selection. Bob Harris (1949) and Gale McArthur (1951) were AP second-team All-Americans as well.
The 2010 first team consisted of Ohio State’s Evan Turner (64 first-team votes, 323 total points), Kentucky’s John Wall (62, 319), Wes Johnson (45, 280) of Syracuse, Villanova’s Scottie Reynolds (32, 243), and DeMarcus Cousins (26, 205) of Kentucky. Anderson had 27 first-place votes, but finished with 197 total points.
Anderson is joined on the second team by Kansas’ Sherron Collins, Greivis Vasquez of Maryland, Duke’s Jon Scheyer and Da’Sean Butler of West Virginia.
The AP All-America third-team members were Greg Monroe of Georgetown, Kansas’ Cole Aldrich, Damion James of Texas, Notre Dame’s Luke Haragody and Darington Hobson of New Mexico.
