Vitale's preseason All-Americans
It is summertime, baby, but I am still looking ahead to the college hoops season. Sitting here at the Broken Egg, I had some time to think about the crème de la crème for the upcoming campaign.
So let's talk about my third-, fourth- and fifth-team preseason All-Americans. Remember, when I do my preseason teams, I do not include diaper dandies. I want them to prove themselves at the collegiate level first!
There are plenty of talented guards out there. Baylor's LaceDarius Dunn was a legitimate candidate for first- or second-team honors but right now, we aren't sure if his off-court troubles are going to keep him sidelined for the season.
Looking at the big men, Arizona's Derrick Williams was one of the best players in the Pac-10 a year ago, and Sean Miller is looking forward to even greater things this season. Williams is joined by the Vols' Scotty Hopson and Chris Wright of Dayton.
