Marquette senior guard Darius Johnson-Odom has been named Honorable Mention All-America by the Associated Press, becoming the 29th player in school history to claim All-America status.
An All-BIG EAST First Team selection and member of the NABC District 5 First Team, the Raleigh, N.C., native averaged 18.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game in 2011-12 and finished among the league leaders in scoring (2nd, 18.3 ppg.), free throw percentage (14th, .764), 3-point field goal percentage (7th, .385) and 3-pointers per game (4th, 2.26).
In just three seasons, Johnson-Odom finished 11th on the school's all-time scoring list with 1,649 points, fourth in 3-pointers made (221), eighth in 3-pointers attempted (549) and ninth in 3-point field goal percentage (.403).
Classmate Jae Crowder earned Second Team All-America honors from the Associated Press for his efforts in 2011-12, marking the first time since 1977-78 (Butch Lee & Jerome Whitehead) Marquette has had more than one player recognized in the same season.
