ANN ARBOR, Mich. --- University of Michigan men's basketball sophomore Nik Stauskas (Mississauga, Ontario/St. Marks [Mass.]) was named today (Monday, March 31) to the John R. Wooden Award All-America Team as well as to the Associated Press All-America second team. Overall, the honors are the fifth and sixth selections for Stauskas to All-America teams.

Stauskas helped the Wolverines a 28-9 record and their first outright Big Ten title in 28 years with a 15-3 record, winning the league by three games. The Wolverines earned their first No. 1 seed at the Big Ten Tournament and reached the championship game first the first time in 16 years. U-M was given the No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament's Midwest region and advanced to its second straight Elite Eight.

Stauskas, who was named the Big Ten's Player of the Year and was the only unanimous All-Big Ten first team selection, led the Maize and Blue with 17.5 points and 3.3 assists while pulling down 2.9 rebounds per game. He scored in double figures in 32 of his 36 games, with 14 20-plus point games, including a career-best 26 twice. He became just the eighth U-M sophomore to reach 1,000 career points (1,060) and the 21st Wolverine to post 600 points in a single season (630).
