Hanbrough Named to Preseason All American Team for Record Third Time

Filed under: , , , , ,

The Associated Press didn't let that stress reaction thingy keep them from making Tyler Hansbrough the leading vote getter in their preseason All-American for a record third straight year.

This year, Hansbrough was the first unanimous pick since Duke's Jason Williams in 2001-2002 and the first repeat selection since Mateen Cleaves in 1999-2000. Last year, Hansbrough missed being a unanimous pick by just one vote.

Joining Hansbrough on the first team is UCLA's Darren Collison, who is also a repeat selection. Davidson's Stephen Curry, Oklahoma's Blake Griffin and Notre Dame's Luke Harangody round out the first team.

The preseason honors are nice, but Hansbrough wants to be the first ever four-time All-American when the season ends.
