When it comes to preseason and postseason all-conference honors, each league does things a bit differently regarding the total amount of all-conference teams selected and the total amount of players selected to each team.
Taking a deeper look into the bevy of talent within the six power conferences, I've put together five teams per conference: First, Second, Third, Honorable Mention and Freshman.
I like to get an early gauge on the strength level of each conference in terms of overall talent, now that we're to that point in the offseason where the draft deadline has passed, and teams are wrapping up on recruiting for the upcoming season's roster.
Keep in mind, selections are based on projected talent and production for the 2011-2012 season, not necessarily a team that could be put together on the court. For example, you may see a team with mostly guards or mostly forwards.
Here are my all-conference team projections for the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Big East, Pac-12 and SEC.
