Dickinson, who was recently named the Big Ten Newcomer of the Year, has appeared in 24 games (starting 19) and is averaging a team-high 14.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.

Dickinson has recorded five 20-plus point games, with his latest coming in Michigan's loss to Ohio State in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament. His strong post play and two-way impact helped the Wolverines win an outright Big Ten title and earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.

He is the first player to be named an Associated Press All-American since Nik Stauskas was on the second team during the 2013-14 season.

The first team included Gonzaga's Corey Kispert, Baylor's Jared Butler, Iowa's Luka Garza, Illinois' Ayo Dosunmu and Oklahoma State's Cade Cunningham.
