Kevin Knox receives AP All-American honorable mention

Congratulations to Kevin Knox, who received All-American honorable mention from the Associated Press this afternoon.

Knox, who averaged 15.6 points and 5.4 rebounds this season, was UK’s lone representative on the AP All-American team list, which is completely bogus because Shai Gilgeous-Alexander proved to be one of the best guards in the entire country and is a potential lottery pick.

The last time Kentucky had only one player on the AP All-American list? 2014, when Julius Randle earned Third Team honors. Check out the complete list after the jump, or just daydream about what it would be like to have a sophomore Kevin Knox. As Matt said this morning, it’s not entirely out of the question…

    If he comes back, he will be 1st or 2nd team All American.

      And if the Queen had balls, she’d be the King…

    Jeez, that’s a lot of honorable mentions. Doesn’t seem like that great of an honor.

      It’s right up there with the “participation” trophy…

      Which just shows how bogus this is. The SEC will have the most first round draft picks by far.

    UK Fan In Nashville – They don’t give the award for potential. They give the reward for ‘action on the court.’

    Knox has potential… he didn’t always show up. No worries, he’s 18. Only he could expect more from himself.

    Another year in college would be huge for his game but he’s going to decide eventually. Wish him the best either way.

      Even in that case Sexton, Maten, Knox and SGA should’ve made it.
