Sophomore forward Jared Sullinger of the Ohio State Buckeyes was named a USBWA All American on Monday.

The Ohio State Buckeyes might have faltered at the very end of the Big Ten tournament when they lost to the Michigan State Spartans, but it wasn't enough to mask the great play of sophomore forward Jared Sullinger, who Monday was announced by the USBWA as a member of the 2012 All American team.

Kentucky's Anthony Davis, Creighton's Doug McDermott, Kansas' Thomas Robinson and Michigan State's Draymond Green make up the rest of the starting five for the All Americans. This is the second year in a row that Sullinger has been picked by the USBWA to be a starting five member; he also won the Wayman Tisdale Award for the Nation's best Freshman in 2011.

Sullinger scored 18 points and had nine rebounds as well in that tournament ending loss to Michigan State. He averaged numbers around there (17.6 points, 9.3 rebounds) for the season for the Buckeyes as well.
