University of Cincinnati senior guard Sean Kilpatrick was named First Team All-America by the Associated Press on Monday.

Sixty-five national writers and broadcasters who vote on the weekly AP poll pick the All-America team. Players are rated on a three-team scale, receiving five points for a first team nod, three for second and one for third. They are ranked by their totals on the corresponding first, second or third team. The accolade from the AP is considered the premier All-America team in the nation.

"Being able to represent this university and be a part of this elite group is something that is really amazing, knowing that all of my hard work has paid off," Kilpatrick said. "All of the accolades that I have received this season don't go without notice and recognition for my coach and my teammates that I've had this past year. I'm excited about this and really happy to be a part of this first team."

Kilpatrick is the sixth Bearcat named an AP First Team All-American and the first since Steve Logan in 2002. Other UC players to earn the honor include Oscar Robertson (three times from 1958-60), Ron Bonham (1963), Danny Fortson (1997) and Kenyon Martin (2000).
