CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The awards continue to roll in for sophomore forward Seth Towns, as he has been named an honorable mention All-America selection by the Associated Press (AP).

Towns is just the fourth player in program history to earn AP All-America honorable mention status, joining Joe Carrabino (1985), Keith Wright (2011) and Wesley Saunders (2014).

The Columbus, Ohio native was the Ivy League Player of the Year after averaging 16.0 points and 5.7 rebounds per game, including marks of 18.6 points and 5.7 rebounds per game in Ivy League play. He joins both Wright and Saunders in being an AP All-American and Ivy Player of the Year in the same season. Towns was one of the top shooters in conference play, as he connected on 49.3 percent of 3-point attempts in conference play.

Towns was also an all-district selection by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and the United States Basketball Writers of America (USBWA), and was named to the Ivy League Tournament All-Tournament team. He led the Crimson to its sixth Ivy League title in program history, and to its second NIT berth.
