We are just over a week into the young college basketball season. We have seen buzzer-beaters, battles of top-ten teams and an exciting start to the year.

Before the season, the Associated Press announced its preseason All-America team. The team consists of Indiana  center Cody Zeller, Creighton forward Doug McDermott, Ohio State forward Deshaun Thomas, Murray State guard Isiah Canaan, Lehigh guard C.J. McCollum and Michigan guard Trey Burke.

Sports Illustrated also released its preseason All-Americans. The only differences were the addition of Missouri guard Phil Pressey, with C.J. McCollum and Trey Burke omitted from the First Team.

The Sporting News released its predictions in early October, with North Carolina forward James Michael McAdoo making the first team, joining, Zeller, McDermott, Thomas and McCollum.
