Butler AP Pick

West Virginia University senior guard Da'Sean Butler has been named to the Associated Press All-America second teamy.

Butler is averaging 17.4 points and 6.3 rebounds per game and is third in career scoring at WVU with 2,085 points. Butler trails only Jerry West (2,309 points) and Hot Rod Hundley (2,180 points) on WVU's all-time scoring list.

Butler becomes the seventh different Mountaineer to earn AP All-America first, second or third team honors and first since Wil Robinson earned third-team honors in 1972.

In the Big East Championship, Butler earned the Most Outstanding Player award after leading WVU to three victories and the school's first conference title. He was also named to the NCAA East Region all-Tournament team in helping WVU to its second Final Four appearance in school history.

A Newark, N.J., native, Butler was named to the all-Big East first team, a Fox Sports.com second team All-American and a United States Basketball Writers Association all-District II selection.

Butler has recorded a school record 107 double-figure scoring games as a Mountaineer. He has been a part of more WVU wins (107) than any other player in school history. West Virginia is 107-38 with Butler in the lineup
