By  | 

UNDATED (AP) -- Wisconsin's Alando Tucker is a member of the Associated Press All-America college basketball team.

The 6'6" Big Ten player of the year helped the Badgers to their first Number One ranking last month.

The senior averaged nearly 20 points and more than five rebounds per game.

He was named today along with freshmen Kevin Durant of Texas and Greg Oden of Ohio State, junior Aaron Afflalo of UCLA and Texas A&M senior Acie Law the Fourth.

Durant led Texas to the Big-12 title while Oden has the Buckeyes playing in this weekend's Final Four in Atlanta.

Since freshman became eligible to play in 1972, the only ones previously selected to the first team have been Wayman Tisdale of Oklahoma in 1983 and Chris Jackson of LSU in 1990.
