The Consensus Is...He Was A First-Team All-American

April 11, 2009

Now that the dust has settled on James Harden's All-America honors, he is officially the first consensus first-team All-America selection in Sun Devil history. The consensus team is calculated on a points system based on the first-, second or third-team honors received from Sporting News, Associated Press, NABC and USBWA. Harden was a first-teamer on each.

It marks the fourth straight year that a Pac-10 player has earned consensus first-team honors, as Harden follows Kevin Love (2007-08), Arron Afflalo (2006-07) and Brandon Roy (2005-06).
