There are 10 members on each of the first three All-America teams.

 

Oklahoma Baptist and Azusa Pacific (Calif.), two teams still playing in the National Championship final tonight, each have a First Team selection. Oklahoma Baptist senior forward Nate Brumfield, a two-time All-America First Team honoree, has been named the 2009-10 NAIA Player of the Year. Dominique Johnson, a senior guard from Azusa Pacific, was picked to the First Team. Johnson was a Third Team selection last season.

 

With one more game to be played, Brumfield ranks first in the NAIA in field goal percentage (.690), third in scoring (22.8 ppg) and 24th in rebounding (8.5 rpg). He is the Sooner Athletic Conference Player of the Year and hit for 20-or-more points this year on 23 occasions. He has also compiled 11 double-doubles this season. During the National Championship (through four games), Brumfield has averaged over 21 points, 7.5 rebounds and shot 66 percent from the field.

 

Leading the No. 15-seed Cougars to their second ever National Championship final, Azusa’s Johnson leads the club in scoring (17.1 ppg) and 3-pointer’s (64), and ranks second in rebounding (4.2 rpg) and assists (2.0 apg). A native of Detroit, Mich., Johnson was named to the All-Golden State Athletic Conference Team.
