Wisconsin senior Frank Kaminsky is a unanimous selection for the 2014-15 AP All-America team while Duke freshman Jahlil Okafor received all but one first-team vote.

Notre Dame senior Jerian Grant, Kentucky junior Willie Cauley-Stein and Ohio State freshman D'Angelo Russell rounded out the team that was announced Monday.

The 7-foot Kaminsky led the Badgers to their second straight Final Four berth, averaging 18.2 points and 8.0 rebounds while shooting 55.3 percent.

Okafor powered the Blue Devils to the Final Four. He averaged 17.7 points and 9.0 rebounds while shooting 66.9 percent, second in the nation.

Grant led the Fighting Irish with a 16.8 scoring average. Cauley-Stein, the 7-footer in the middle of the Wildcats' run at an unbeaten season, averaged 9.3 points. He is the first first-team selection to average less than 10 points a game.

Russell averaged 19.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.1 assists.

The voting was done by the same 65-member media panel that selects the weekly Top 25.
