Frank Mason III was a last-minute recruit for Kansas. He turned into the Jayhawks' latest All-American.

The senior guard was the only unanimous selection to the 2016-17 AP All-America team Tuesday, receiving all first-team votes from the same 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly AP Top 25.

"I love the kid and I think he knows how I feel about him, but I've never been more proud - not that he's won a postseason award - but he's done everything that he's supposed to do," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "He's been a great teammate, he's been tough as nails, he's worked his butt off, he's loved by everyone in the academic departments, graduated, and to see him reap these benefits after putting in so much time is an unbelievable honor."

Martin: New perceptions of me 'comical'

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina coach Frank Martin believes he's the same straight-forward, open book he has always been, though perceptions of him have changed with the Gamecocks' run to the Final Four.

"How the stories have changed that I'm a yeller and a screamer to that I'm a passionate man," Martin said Tuesday, "I find that very comical."

Duquesne hires ex-Akron coach Dambrot
