CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Xavier University senior Trevon Bluiett has been named to another preseason All-America team. Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook lists Bluiett as a 2017-18 preseason Third Team All-American in its preseason magazine.

Bluiett was selected as a 2017-18 preseason Second Team All-American by NBC Sports earlier this year.

"Trevon is one of the best players in all of college basketball," said Xavier University head coach Chris Mack.

Bluiett, a 2015-16 and 2016-17 First Team All-BIG EAST Conference selection, was second in the BIG EAST Conference in scoring as a junior at 18.5 ppg. Bluiett was second on the team in rebounding at 5.7 rpg., which ranked 10th in the BIG EAST. He ranked third in the BIG EAST in 3-point field goals made at 2.5 per game, including a career-high and school-record tying nine at Cincinnati.
