KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced the 2010-11 Division I Men's Basketball All-America Teams on Wednesday. The selections are made by the NAIA Men's Basketball Coaches' Association All-America Committee and comprises a First, Second, Third and Honorable Mention Team. There are 10 members on each of the first three All-America teams.

 

Justin Johnson of Concordia (Calif.) has been selected as the NAIA National Player of the Year. He becomes the first player from the school to win the award since this program began in 1994. He tied for the team lead this year in scoring (14.8 ppg) while shooting 52 percent from the floor. He also maintained averages of 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 steals. He led the Eagles to a 32-4 record and an appearance in the National Championship Quarterfinals.

  

The Rawlings-NAIA National Coach of the Year went to Pikeville's (Ky.) Kelly Wells. He guided his club to its first-ever National Championship title after an 83-76 victory over Mountain State (W.Va.) on Tuesday. The Bears finished with a school-best 30-7 season record and landed senior guard Vance Cooksey on the All-America Second Team.
