For the second time in his still-young NBA career, Donovan Mitchell is an All-Star.
The former Cardinal was named as one of the eight reserves for the Western Conference Tuesday night. Mitchell was also a reserve on the Western Conference squad last season.

Mitchell is currently averaging a career-best 24.5 points per game for a Utah Jazz team that owns the best record in the NBA (25-6). His Jazz teammate Rudy Gobert is also a Western Conference reserve.
Congrats to Donovan on continuing to make everyone associated with Louisville basketball proud.
