Gonzaga junior guard Nigel Williams-Goss was named first-team All-America by Sports Illustrated.

Williams-Goss earlier this week was a second-team All-America selection by three national outlets.

Williams-Goss is joined on the first team by UCLA’s Lonzo Ball, Villanova’s Josh Hart, Kansas’ Frank Mason III and Purdue’s Caleb Swanigan.

Williams-Goss, the WCC Player of the Year, leads Gonzaga in scoring (16.9 points per game) assists (4.8) and steals (1.8).

He averaged 22.3 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5 assists to lead Gonzaga to the WCC tournament title in Las Vegas. Williams-Goss was voted the tournament’s most outstanding player.

Washington’s Markelle Fultz, Duke’s Luke Kennard, Wisconsin’s Ethan Happ, North Carolina’s Justin Jackson and Baylor’s Johnathan Motley were on SI’s second team.
