In his last season at UCLA, Kyle Anderson was the linchpin of one of college basketball’s most prolific offenses.
Now, he is the Bruins’ first Associated Press All-American since 2007-08. The sophomore made the list’s third team after averaging 14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists — the closest to a triple double of player in the country. He improved on his freshman season in nearly every single area, most notably increasing his 3-point percentage from 21.1 to 48.3.
Six years ago, Kevin Love earned a first-team nod as a freshman, while point guard Darren Collison made the third team as a junior.
