For the 28th time in program history, the Tar Heels have a player that has earned first team consensus All-American honors.

The National Association of Basketball Coaches and United States Basketball Writers Association each released their All-Americans earlier today and both named Davis a first team member. They combine with the first team honors that The Sporting News and the Associated Press handed him to make him just the 19th player in program history to be a consensus All-American.

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.
