Jock Landale named Second Team AP All-American

Jaylen Adams, Peyton Aldridge, and others were named honorable mention.

NCAA Basketball: Pepperdine at St. Mary's Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Saint Mary’s center Jock Landale has been named to the AP All-American Second Team. The senior averaged 21.1 points and 10.2 rebounds per game and finished fourth in the KenPom National Player of the Year standings. He is the only player from a mid-major conference on either of the first three teams.

The second team includes Miles Bridges, Trevon Blueitt, Jevon Carter, and Keita Bates-Diop.

The honor, for the Australian big man, is a silver lining to the committee’s snub of the Gaels in the big dance. Saint Mary’s went 30-6 this year with a win at Gonzaga, but ultimately did not have a strong enough schedule to earn an at-large bid. The Gaels ended their season with an overtime loss to Utah in the NIT quarterfinals.

The honorable mention list includes plenty of players from mid-major leagues, including St. Bonaventure’s Jaylen Adams and Davidson’s Peyton Aldridge.

The teams:

First Team

Jalen Brunson, Villanova
Deandre Ayton, Arizona
Trae Young, Oklahoma
Marvin Bagley III, Duke
Devonte’ Graham, Kansas

Second Team

Keita Bates-Diop
Trevon Bluiett, Xavier
Jock Landale, Saint Mary’s
Miles Bridges, Michigan State
Jevon Carter, West Virginia

Third Team

Keenan Evans, Texas Tech
Carsen Edwards, Purdue
Mikal Bridges, Villanova
Luke Maye, North Carolina
Kyle Guy, Virginia
