Shabazz Muhammad Earns All-District, All-America Acclaim

March 26, 2013

LOS ANGELES - UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad has been selected as one of five players to the NABC All-District 20 first team and one of 21 players, nationally, named to the 2013 Lute Olson All-America Team.

Muhammad, a 6-foot-6 swingman from Las Vegas, finished his freshman season leading UCLA with 17.9 ppg and was tied for second on the team with 5.2 rpg (along with junior Travis Wear). He was the only player from the Pac-12 Conference selected to this season's Lute Olson All-America Team.

Muhammad ranks fourth in the Pac-12 in scoring (17.9 ppg) and 11th in three-point field goal percentage (.377).

Joining Muhammad as first-team selections (NABC All-District 20) are California's Allen Crabbe, Arizona State's Jahii Carson and Arizona's Solomon Hill and Mark Lyons. Second-team selections from District 20 include Stanford's Dwight Powell, Colorado's Spencer Dinwiddie, Oregon's E.J. Singler, Arizona State's Carrick Felix, Washington State's Brock Motum and Washington's C.J. Wilcox.

Selections to this season's Lute Olson All-America Team include Anthony Bennett (UNLV), Trey Burke (Michigan), Ian Clark (Belmont), Ramon Galloway (La Salle), Erick Green (Virginia Tech), Shane Larkin (Miami), Ray McCallum (Detroit), Doug McDermott (Creighton), Ben McLemore (Kansas), Mike Muscala (Bucknell), Victor Oladipo (Indiana), Kelly Olynyk (Gonzaga), Mason Plumlee (Duke), Otto Porter, Jr. (Georgetown), Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State), Russ Smith (Louisville), Deshaun Thomas (Ohio State), Jeff Withey (Kansas), Nate Wolters (South Dakota State) and Cody Zeller (Indiana).

The Lute Olson Award is presented annually to the nation's top Division I player who has played at least two seasons with his respective team. Freshmen and first-year transfers can be named to the All-America team, but are not eligible to receive Player of the Year honors.

Muhammad's other honors this season have included securing first-team All-Pac-12 honors and being named the Pac-12 Co-Freshman of the Year, along with Arizona State's Jahii Carson. He has been named a second-team All-America selection by The Sporting News and earned Freshman All-America honors from the U.S. Basketball Writers' Association (USBWA).
