Randle joins Nerlens Noel (2013), Anthony Davis and Michael-Kidd Gilchrist (2012), Terrence Jones and Brandon Knight (2011) and DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall (2010) to earn USBWA Freshman All-America accolades under the direction of John Calipari.

Randle is averaging team-highs in points per game (15.0) and rebounds per game (10.5) through 34 games this season.

He logged 20 double-double efforts which ties Davis and Cousins for the most in a single-season in freshman history at Kentucky.

His rebound total ranks 13th among any player in single-season history, while his made free throws is the sixth most in a single year in school history.

The 20 double-doubles paces the Southeastern Conference and ranks second nationally. He’s the only freshman in the country to have topped 15 or more double-doubles in 2014. He ranks fourth in single season history at Kentucky with the 20 double-doubles registered.

Kentucky returns to action Friday, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in St. Louis. UK will face Kansas State at approximately 9:40 p.m. ET.
