USBWA UNVEILS 2021-22 MEN'S ALL-DISTRICT HONORS

INDIANAPOLIS (USBWA) The U.S. Basketball Writers Association has released its 2021-22 Men's All-District Teams, based on voting from its national membership of 900-plus. The USBWA has selected All-District teams since the 1956-57 season, its founding year.

For each of the nine geographic districts, ten players are selected as well as a player and coach of the year. Five schools Colorado State (David Roddy and coach Niko Medved), Kansas (Ochai Agbaji and coach Bill Self), Villanova (Collin Gillespie and coach Jay Wright), Wake Forest (Alondes Williams and coach Steve Forbes) and Wisconsin (Johnny Davis and coach Greg Gard) earned both the Player of the Year and Coach of the Year honors.

Twenty-five Division I conferences are represented among the 90 players honored by the USBWA. The Big East and SEC, with 11 all-district players, lead all conferences, followed by the Big Ten with 10. UConn (District I), Duke (District III) and Arizona and Gonzaga (District IX) are the only schools to be represented by three players. Teammates from 12 other schools Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Bryant, Illinois, Kansas, Providence, Purdue, Tennessee, Vermont, Villanova and Wyoming have also been lauded by the USBWA.

The USBWA will release its 2021-22 men's and women's All-America teams tomorrow at 9 a.m. ET.
