Wilbekin named AP All-American

GAINESVILLE -- Scottie Wilbekin's trophy case is running out of space. 

Top-seeded Florida's point guard -- the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, SEC Tournament Most Valuable Player and South Regional Most Outstanding Player --  was named a third-team All-American by the Associated Press on Monday, the most prestigious of any All-American teams

Wilbekin became Florida's first player to earn AP All-American honors since Joakim Noah and Al Horford in 2006-07. 

Wilbekin averages 13.4 points and 3.7 assists as UF's floor general, but the 6-foot-2 senior has upped his performance on the biggest stage -- averaging 16.8 points in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. 

Seniors Casey Prather and Patric Young received honorable mention acclaim, while Prather -- the team's leading scorer at 13.8 points per gam -- also landed on the 10-player Wooden All-American team
