Knox, Gilgeous-Alexander named to USBWA District IV Team

There are more postseason accolades coming in for Kevin Knox and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

After earning All-SEC honors earlier on Tuesday, Knox and Gilgeous-Alexander were two of the 10 players selected for the United States Basketball Writers Association’s District IV Team.

The two Cats are joined on the list by Bryce Brown (Auburn), Chris Chiozza (Florida), Jared Harper (Auburn), Nick King (Middle Tennessee State), Yante Maten (Georgia), Collin Sexton (Alabama), Jonathan Stark (Murray State) and Grant Williams (Tennessee).

This brings UK’s total USBWA All-District selections to 19 in the nine seasons under John Calipari. All but four of those 19 were true freshmen, including Knox and Gilgeous-Alexander, as well as Devin Booker (2015), DeMarcus Cousins (2010), Anthony Davis (2012), De’Aaron Fox (2017), Terrence Jones (2011), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (2012), Brandon Knight (2011), Malik Monk (2017), Jamal Murray (2016), Nerlens Noel (2013), Julius Randle (2014), Karl-Anthony Towns (2015) and John Wall (2010).

Go Cats.
