For the first time since Yogi Ferrell in 2016, an Indiana player has earned All-America status and a spot on the All-Big Ten first team.

It’s Trayce Jackson-Davis, IU’s star sophomore who on Tuesday picked up a whole bunch of postseason honors. Jackson-Davis’ All-America nod comes from The Sporting News, while the league’s media members selected him to the all-conference first team. Big Ten coaches placed the Greenwood, Ind. native on the second team.

Jackson-Davis also landed on the Associated Press’ All-Big Ten first team.

For the season, Jackson-Davis is the only Big Ten player averaging at least 19.1 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. He ranks fourth in the league in scoring, second in rebounding, and fifth in field goal percentage (51.5%) and blocks (1.4). Nationally, Jackson-Davis ranks third in free throws made (147) and first in attempts (222). He also has had 10 double-doubles this season and 22 in his career, and stands as the only Hoosier in the last 25 years to post three 25-point, 15 rebound games in his career (Nebraska, at Minnesota, at Florida State.
