PROVO, Utah — BYU senior guard Alex Barcello was named one of 42 players nationwide to receive All-America honorable mention honors on Tuesday by the Associated Press.

The honor comes along with Barcello being named to the WCC First Team earlier.

Barcello is averaging 15.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game for a Cougars. He scored a career-high 29 points where he was 7-for-7 beyond the arc, a BYU record for most 3-pointers in a game without a miss, this season against San Francisco.

Iowa’s Luka Garza, Baylor’s Jared Butler, Illinois’ Ayo Dosunmu, Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham and Gonzaga’s Corey Kispert were named First Team All-Americans by the AP.

Barcello and the Cougars will face the winner of a UCLA and Michigan State play-in game and will hold a No. 6 seed in the first round of the 2021 NCAA Tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana on Saturday at 7:40 p.m. MDT on CBS.
