Freshman guard Jamal Murray has been named to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Freshman All-America Team.

Murray has already been named to the Sporting News Freshman All-America Team and has been one of the nation’s best scorers all season long and led the league with five SEC Weekly honors. He currently leads the Wildcats in scoring at 20.1 points per game, which, if the season ended today, would be the highest individual scoring average at Kentucky in the John Calipari era.

Murray joined California’s Jaylen Brown, Marquette’s Henry Ellenson, Duke’s Brandon Ingram and LSU’s Ben Simmons on the team.
