College Basketball 2012-13 Preview: B/R Writers' All-America Teams

One of the most exciting parts of the college-basketball preseason is anticipating which players will emerge as the best in America.

Last season, very few had Thomas Robinson pegged as one of the nation's five best players, but he hoisted Kansas on his back and helped the Jayhawks to the national-title game.

Likewise, Xavier's Tu Holloway was expected to reign as one of college basketball's biggest stars. But, like his team's season, Holloway's was never quite the same after the Musketeers and Cincinnati mistook the court for the Octagon.

Who are the players that will break out and the ones that will fall just short? Eleven of B/R's top college-hoops writers have cast their ballots, and here are the three teams they've selected, along with some comments from each.

Also, check out the All-Snub Team, some "notable omissions" who didn't quite get enough votes to make the cut. We include these so we can stir up the reader responses, and we'll certainly get a few comments from all of you telling us we're idiots. And just for Bob Smith, we'll keep the slideshow short.

Read on and sharpen the knives, folks.


(Participating columnists in alphabetical order: Jon Hancock, Scott Henry, Thad Novak, Matt Overing, Robert Pace, Scott Polacek, Ryan Satsky, Josh Schoch, Gene Siudut, James Sullivan and Dan Vasta)
