Team success matters when it comes to postseason recognition.
In the last two seasons, Doug McDermott (twice) and Trey Burke are the only players to be first-team All-Americans off teams that did not get a top two seed in the NCAA tournament. Burke played on a team that was No. 1 at one point and made the national championship game, so it's not like he wasn't on a contender.
If you're trying to predict next season's All-Americans, identifying the best player on each of the best teams is probably a good place to start. Also, go ahead and pen in McDermott. He's made the first team twice. He's a good bet to make it as a senior.
To figure out who will join him, I identified the best player on the top 10 teams from our latest preseason rankings.
