Marks Named Honorable Mention All-America
March 30, 2015

Boise State men's basketball senior Derrick Marks was named Associated Press All-America honorable mention Monday. Marks is the first men's basketball All-American in Boise State history.

Marks scored 19.4 points per game on the season, ranking No. 22 in the country. He finished the year shooting 49.4 percent from the field, the 12th-best mark nationally among guards. His three-point percentage of 43.6 percent from three-point range is the fifth-best mark in Boise State history with at least two made triples per game.

The All-America honor is the latest in a long list of accolades for Marks this season. The Chicago native was named the Mountain West Player of the Year by the coaches and the media, as well as All-MW First Team, USBWA All-District VIII and NABC All-District 17 First Team.

The AP All-America team consists of three five-member teams and a list of honorable mention selections. Marks was among 49 honorable mention selections and the only representative from the Mountain West. He is the 19th MW men's basketball student-athlete to earn All-America recognition from the AP in conference history.

Bill Otey was an NAIA honorable mention All-American in 1969, the only previous All-America honor for Boise State men's basketball.
