Kansas forward Thomas Robinson is a unanimous pick for The Associated Press’ All-America team, while Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger is a repeat selection.

Draymond Green of Michigan State, freshman Anthony Davis of Kentucky and Creighton’s Doug McDermott rounded out the team Monday.

Robinson received first-team votes from all 65 members of the national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. He is the first unanimous pick since Blake Griffin of Oklahoma in 2009.

Sullinger is the first repeat All-America since Tyler Hansbrough of North Carolina in 2009. He is the first to do it as a freshman and sophomore since Chris Jackson of LSU in 1989 and 1990.

With Davis’ selection there has been at least one freshman on the first team five of the last six years.
