Juwan Morgan earns all-district honors from NABC, USBWA
Indiana junior forward Juwan Morgan, who was named second team All-Big Ten earlier this month, continues to add individual accolades for his breakout 2017-18 season.
On Tuesday morning, the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) named Morgan to its all-District 7 second team. Morgan was joined by Michigan’s Moritz Wagner, Purdue’s Vincent Edwards, Wisconsin’s Ethan Happ and Purdue’s Isaac Haas on the second team.
The NABC’s all-district 7 first team features Ohio State’s Keita Bates-Diop, Michigan State’s Miles Bridges, Purdue’s Carsen Edwards, Nebraska’s James Palmer and Penn State’s Tony Carr.
Last week, Morgan was named all-district V by the United State Basketball Writers Association (USBWA). The 11-man team includes players from six states: Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Joining Morgan on the all-district V team: Bates-Diop, Bridges, Carsen Edwards, Vincent Edwards, Wagner, Michigan State’s Cassius Winston, Xavier’s Trevon Bluiett, Cincinnati’s Gary Clark and Butler’s Kelan Martin.
Morgan averaged 16.5 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.2 steals in 29.4 minutes per game as Indiana finished 16-15 and did not qualify for postseason play.
