MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) _ Cincinnati guard Sean Kilpatrick, UConn guard Shabazz Napier and Louisville guard Russ Smith all are unanimous selections for the 2014 American Athletic Conference’s all-league team.

The American announced the team as voted on by coaches Tuesday.

Louisville forward Montrezl Harrell and SMU guard Nic Moore are the other members of the first-team.

The conference will announce the American’s player of the year Wednesday with that award likely going to either Kilpatrick, Napier or Smith.

Kilpatrick is the league’s leading scorer averaging 20.9 points a game as he helped Cincinnati win a share of the league’s title. Napier is second in scoring and assists, while Smith helped Louisville go 26-5 and share the regular-season title with Cincinnati. All three are finalists for the Wooden Award.
