Carsen Edwards has been named a consensus All-American following a legendary tournament performance leading Purdue to within seconds of it's first Final Four since 1980.

He is joined by Michigan State point guard Cassius Winston, and Wisconsin big man Ethan Happ as the only consesus All-Americans from the Big Ten this year. 

Edwards averaged 24 points with almost 4 assists per game throughout the regular season.  This almost doesn't even compare to the show he put on during Purdue's tournament run - nearly 35 points per game, and an Elite 8 showdown with Kyle Guy that will be talked about for years to come. 

Now college hoops, and mainly West Lafayette, wait for his decision on whether or enter the NBA draft or return to Purdue for his senior season.
