Duke's Smith a first-team All-American

Duke guard Nolan Smith is one of three seniors who were announced Monday as first-team All-American selections by The Associated Press.

Smith was joined on the All-America team by seniors Jimmer Fredette of Brigham Young and JaJuan Johnson of Purdue. Connecticut junior Kemba Walker and Ohio State freshman Jared Sullinger also earned All-America honors.

The ACC player of the year, Smith averaged 21.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game while leading Duke to the ACC tournament title and a No. 1 seed for the NCAA tournament. The Blue Devils finished 32-5 after being eliminated in the West Regional semifinals by Arizona on Thursday.

Smith is Duke's fifth All-American since 2000; two Blue Devils, Jason Williams and J.J. Redick, have beeen All-Americans twice in that time.

The All-America second team consisted of Marcus Morris of Kansas, Ben Hansbrough of Notre Dame, Jordan Taylor of Wisconsin, Derrick Williams of Arizona and Kawhi Leonard of San Diego State.
