INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --
South Dakota State's Mike Daum picked up honorable mention All-America honors from the Associated Press Tuesday, earning recognition from the organization for the third year in a row.

Daum, who was named as a Third Team All-American by the USBWA and NABC last month, became the first Summit League player to be recognized as a consensus All-American (Third Team) by the NCAA in the 36-year history of the league. Daum also collected an honorable mention spot on The Sporting News All-America Team, giving him a mention on all four of the teams that make up the NCAA's consensus criteria. 
 
Daum averaged 25.3 points and 11.7 rebounds per game for the season, finishing as the only player with a 25-10 double-double average in the NCAA. The three-time Summit League Player of the Year concluded his career as the school's all-time leader in points, rebounds, field goals, 3-pointers and free throws. He is seventh all-time in NCAA history with 3,067 career points and is also The Summit League's all-time leading rebounder.
 
Daum was selected to the 3-Point Championship roster for the 31st annual State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships at Minneapolis' Target Center on Thursday.
