The American Athletic Conference released their all conference teams today. To the surprise of no one, Sean Kilpatrick was named to the first team. The rest of the first team consists of the other competitors for conference player of the year, which will be announced tomorrow, Russ Smith of Louisville and Shabazz Napier of Connecticut. All three were unanimous choices. Louisville's Montrezl Harrell and SMU's Nic Moore were also named to the first team.
Justin Jackson was one of six players named to the second team. He's joined by Isaiah Sykes of UCF, TaShawn Thomas of Houston, Markus Kennedy of SMU and the Memphis duo of Shaq Goodwin and Joe Jackson.
It's the first time Jackson has received such an honor.
No Bearcats made the all rookie team. Austin Nichols of Memphis was an unanimous selection and will likely be the conference rookie of the year.
Congratulations to all of the players awarded the honor, especially Sean Kilpatrick and Justin Jackson. Here are the full teams and the whole press release from the AAC is after the jump.
