John Collins
Wake Forest sophomore forward John Collins (208-F-97) was named a second-team All-American this week by Basketball Times. With the honor, Collins becomes the 15th Demon Deacon to earn All-America honors.

Collins earned first-team All-ACC honors in 2016-17 while also being named the league's Most Improved Player. He averaged 19.2 points and 9.8 rebounds per game, posting 17 double-doubles while leading the Demon Deacons to their first NCAA appearance since 2010. His 20.3 scoring average in ACC play led the league. Collins led the league in field goal percentage in both conference games (63.9%) and overall (62.2%). His streak of 12 consecutive 20-point games was the longest in ACC play since NC State's T.J. Warren in 2014 and the longest by a Demon Deacon in over four decades. Collins led the ACC in 20-and-10 games with 10 overall and eight in ACC play.

Collins joins Dickie Hemric (1954, 1955), Jackie Murdock (1957), Len Chappell (1961, 1962), Charlie Davis (1971), Skip Brown (1977), Rod Griffin (1977, 1978), Frank Johnson (1981), Rodney Rogers (1993), Randolph Childress (1995), Tim Duncan (1995, 1996, 1997), Josh Howard (2003), Chris Paul (2005), Jeff Teague (2009) and Al-Farouq Aminu (2010) on Wake Forest's list of All-Americans.
