Heel Tough Blog: RJ Davis Lands Second First Team All-American Honors

Jim Dedmon- USA Today Sports

The offseason accolades have been rolling in for RJ Davis and he added what may have been his best one yet.

The Associated Press announced Davis as a first team All-American after an amazing senior season. He coupled that with the first team honors from the Sporting News last Tuesday.

He enters the NCAA Tournament with 21.4 points per game, the best mark in the ACC. He also leads the conference in made field goals (241) and 3-point field goals (106). The 106 3-point makes are the most in program history, breaking the previous record held by Justin Jackson. His 21.4 per game makes him the first player to average more than 20.0 points per game in a season since Tyler Hansbrough in 2008-09. That mark is also the best since Hansbrough averaged 22.6 per game in 2007-08. His 43.1% field percentage is the second-best of his career, while his 40.6% 3-point field goal percentage is easily the best mark he has put up in his four years.

Davis becomes the 23rd  player in program history to earn first team All-American honors from at least two publications. He is hoping to become just the 19th player to be named a consensus first team All-American.
