EUGENE, Ore---Oregon guard Payton Pritchard has been named a first team All-American. Pritchard is the first Duck in school history to earn such honors.
Pritchard was named alongside Luka Garza of Iowa, Markus Howard of Marquette, Myles Powell of Seton Hall and Obi Toppin of Dayton.
By earning AP All-American honors, Pritchard is halfway to being the first consensus All-American at Oregon since 1940, when John Dick was named.
The 2020 Pac-12 Player of the Year is one of just three players in the nation to average at least 20 points, four rebounds, and five assists per game. He is also one of just four players to lead a conference in both scoring and assists.
Additionally, Pritchard joins Gary Payton, Damon Stoudamire, and Jason Terry as the only players in Pac-12 history to lead the league in both scoring and assists.
Pritchard fought his way to the Oregon record books over his career. He holds the school record for assists (659), wins (105), games played (144), and games started (140). He ranks fourth all-time at Oregon in scoring with 1,938 points.
