The NABC, or National Association of Basketball Coaches, have named their All-American teams, and a pair of Big 12 players made the first team.

Trae Young, the nation’s leading scorer, and Devonte’ Graham, the leader of the best team in the Big 12 Conference both made first team.

Jevon Carter of West Virginia and Keenan Evans of Texas Tech also appear on the list as third teamers.

Young’s Sooners were bounced in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, but Graham’s Jayhawks, Evans’s Red Raiders, and Carter’s Mountaineers all made the Sweet Sixteen.

The Kansas Jayhawks won the Big 12 for the 14th year in a row with a 13-5 record in conference play. They also won the Big 12 Tournament, defeating the West Virginia Mountaineers 81-70 to hold both crowns.

Oklahoma was bounced in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament in addition to the NCAA Tournament, and finished the regular season with an 8-10 conference record.
