CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Capturing his second All-America honor of the week, sophomore forward Seth Towns of the Harvard men's basketball team has been named to the Lou Henson All-America team.

The Lou Henson team honors the top mid-major players in the country, and the Lou Henson Award, presented April 2, will honor the top mid-major player, selected from the list of All-America selections. Towns is the only Ivy League player honored, and is one of eight sophomores on the list.

Towns is the fourth player in program history to be named a Lou Henson All-American, joining Jeremy Lin (2010), 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.

He was also named an AP All-America honorable mention selection on Tuesday.
