Kelly Olynyk a Top Five All-American
Fans of the NWSB blog & followers of me ("Q") on twitter @NWSBQ know what a fan of Canadian athletes (specifically British Columbia athletes) I am.
Today we found out Gonzaga University junior Kelly Olynyk was named to the John R. Wooden Top Five All-America team Friday.
Kelly is only the 3rd Zag to receive this recognition, joining Dan Dickau in 2002 and Adam Morrison in 2006. the West Coast Conference Player of the Year. Olynyk averaged 17.8 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 1.7 assists/game and 1.1 blocks/game. The Zags finished the 2013 season stumbling out of the NCAA Tournament losing to eventual final 4 club Wichita State of course, but he did manage to help Gonzaga to a 32-3 overall record, and a 16-0 WCC mark.
