For the second straight year, Purdue’s Zach Edey is the unanimous headliner for the Associated Press men’s college basketball All-America team.

The 7-foot-4, 300-pound senior topped all 62 ballots from AP Top 25 poll voters in results released Tuesday. The reigning AP national player of the year claimed all 58 votes last year.

Tennessee’s Dalton Knecht and North Carolina’s RJ Davis joined Edey (310 points) in a clear top trio. Knecht (298) was a first-team pick on 56 ballots, Davis (296) was on 55 and both appeared among the top 10 players on every ballot.

Houston’s Jamal Shead and Tristen Newton of reigning NCAA champion UConn rounded out the first team.

Edey leads the country in scoring at 24.4 points and ranks third in rebounding (11.7). Named the AP’s Big Ten player of the year for a second straight time, Edey has the chance to be the first player to repeat as AP national player of the year since another 7-4 star: Virginia’s Ralph Sampson in 1981, 1982 and 1983.

Edey became Purdue’s career scoring leader during a loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten tournament.

Marquette’s Tyler Kolek headlined the second team and was the only other player to earn at least 10 first-team votes. The guard was an AP third-team All-American last season.

Alabama’s Mark Sears joined Kolek in the backcourt of that second quintet, which boasts an imposing front line with Dayton’s DaRon Holmes II (6-10), Duke’s Kyle Filipowski (7-0) and Kansas’ Hunter Dickinson (7-2) — a second-team selection in 2021 when he was at Michigan.

San Diego State’s Jaedon LeDee led the third-team selections, joined by Auburn’s Johni Broome, Pac-12 player of the year Caleb Love of Arizona and Creighton’s Baylor Scheierman.

The final spot went to Illinois’ Terrence Shannon Jr. (54 points), the nation’s No. 3 scorer at 23 points per game.

Kentucky’s Antonio Reeves and Kansas’ Kevin McCullar Jr. finished right behind Shannon to stand as the leading vote-getters among players who didn’t make the All-America teams.

Players earned honorable mention status if they appeared on multiple voters’ ballots. Although 21 players qualified, Reeves (52), McCullar (52) and Providence’s Devin Carter (36) were the only players to get more than 15 points in voting from that group.

The honorable mention list also included Bacot, a preseason All-American pick who was a third-team All-American last year.
