INDIANAPOLIS - Purdue junior forward Robbie Hummel added another honor to his postseason haul on Saturday when he was named to the State Farm Coaches' Division I All-America second team, selected by members of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Earlier in the week, Hummel and classmate E'Twaun Moore became the Boilermakers' first All-Americans since 1994 when both were named to the Associated Press honorable mention squad. Purdue has now seen 28 players combine to earn 46 All-America honors in its men's basketball history.

A first-team All-Big Ten selection and both an NABC and USBWA all-district pick, Hummel led the Big Ten in free throw percentage (.902), and ranked fourth in defensive rebounds (5.3) sixth in both total rebounds (6.9) and blocked shots (1.0) and seventh in points (15.7) per game.

The Valparaiso, Ind., native, who was lost for the year to a knee injury on Feb. 24, posted eight double-doubles on the year, led Purdue in scoring eight times and paced the team in rebounds on 13 occasions. He had a streak of 20-consecutive games with at least 10 points during the campaign, and set a program record in the early stages of the season by making 36-consecutive free throws.

Hummel also broke the 1,000-point and 500-rebound milestones for his career during the season, becoming just the 19th player in program history to reach both markers. He was named a finalist for the Oscar Robertson Trophy, and was also included on the midseason watch lists for the Wooden Award and the Naismith Trophy.
