This is the first time that I’ve done anything like this and boy was it harder than I expected. I went in with a list of key players from each team based on my individual previews of each team, and thought I would easily be able to categorize them into just a few teams. I decided to keep it true to basketball and selected two guards, two forwards, and one extra player for each of the three teams. The All-Freshman team is then comprised of the best Freshman that didn’t make any of the other three teams.

Because I filled up these four teams and then still felt like there were several players that deserved to be mentioned, I then went and added a list of honorable mentions. In comparison, the official All-SEC teams at the end of last season had three separate teams of eight players each. To cap it all off I picked a Player of the Year, a Freshman of the Year, and a Coach of the Year. With all those details out there, here are my All-SEC picks:
