Agbaji is averaging 18.9 points and 5.2 rebounds and has knocked down 96 3-point shots in 37 games this season.

The winner will be announced Tuesday, one day after the national championship game.

The above five players also were named to the 10-player Wooden All-American team. Also named to the squad were Illinois’ Kofi Cockburn, Gonzaga’s Chet Holmgren, Purdue’s Jaden Ivey, Arizona’s Bennedict Mathurin and Auburn’s Jabari Smith.
