KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Gonzaga junior forward Rui Hachimura was named first-team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches on Tuesday.

Also named to the first team were freshman forwards RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson of Duke, sophomore guard Ja Morant of Murray State and junior forward Grant Williams of Tennessee.

Top-seeded Gonzaga (32-3) faces fourth-seeded Florida State (29-7) in the West Regional semifinals Thursday at 4:09 p.m. on CBS.
