Seth Davis and Luke Winn serve up their picks for SI.com's Midseason All-America teams
G: Stephen Curry, Jr., Davidson: 28.9 ppg, 6.5 apg, 4.1 rpg
Even one memorable shutout (the Patsos Defense on Nov. 25) didn't derail Curry's bid to lead the nation in scoring.
G: Jeff Teague, Soph., Wake Forest: 20.7 ppg, 3.7 apg, 54.4% threes
The breakout player of the year has helped turn Wake into an ACC title contender one season ahead of schedule.
G/F: James Harden, Soph., Arizona State: 21.9 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 4.1 apg
The 6-foot-5 lefty stuffs the stat sheet with impressive efficiency (52.5 percent shooting) despite facing constant double-teams on the perimeter.
F: Blake Griffin, Soph., Oklahoma: 22.1 ppg, 14.1 rpg, 62.6% FGs
The overwhelming Wooden-and-Naismith favorite is close to a double-double lock, having reached the mark in 19 of the Sooners' 23 games.
F: Tyler Hansbrough, Sr., North Carolina: 22.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 84.6% FTs
Psycho T's numbers are slightly down from last season, but he beats out Notre Dame's Luke Harangody, a statistical monster, because the Heels haven't lost six games in a row.
G: Jerel McNeal, Sr., Marquette: 20.0 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 3.8 apg
After building a rep as a lockdown defender in his first three seasons, McNeal has also become an offensive force as the senior star of the Big East's surprise frontrunner.
G: Eric Maynor, Sr., VCU: 23.2 ppg, 5.9 apg, 3.8 rpg
He's still best known for the shot that sunk Duke in the 2007 NCAA tournament, but Maynor has since blossomed into one of the country's best all-around point guards.
F: Jodie Meeks, Jr., Kentucky: 25.1 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 44.0% threes
His tour de force at Tennessee on Jan. 13 -- 54 points scored in regulation, a new UK record -- will likely go down as the season's best single-game performance.
F: Luke Harangody, Jr., Notre Dame: 25.1 ppg, 13.2 rpg, 82.3% FTs
He's expanded his offensive arsenal since winning Big East Player of the Year as a sophomore, and has continued to shine during the Irish's slide out of the NCAA tournament picture.
F: DeJuan Blair, Soph., Pittsburgh: 14.9 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 59.5% FGs
Pitt's beastly big man creates his own offense -- and devastates opposing frontcourts -- by grabbing 6.1 offensive rebounds per game.
G: Ty Lawson, Jr., North Carolina: 15.5 ppg, 6.5 apg, 3.6-to-1 assist-turnover ratio
He's been a brilliant creator and dead-eye shooter, hitting 50.0 percent of his treys during ACC play, including a buzzer-beater at Florida State on Jan. 28 that put the Heels in position to take over the ACC lead.
G: Nick Calathes, Soph., Florida: 18.1 ppg, 6.4 apg, 5.3 rpg
Mini-Donovan has lifted the Gators back into the top 25, scoring 20 points in five of their past six ACC games, including a triple-double (20 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists) against Georgia on Jan. 28.
G/F: Gerald Henderson, Jr., Duke: 15.0 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 45.6% threes
Teammate Kyle Singler may be equally deserving for this spot, but Henderson's January breakout turned Duke into a truly elite team and national title contender.
F: Terrence Williams, Sr., Louisville: 13.4 ppg, 9.1 rpg, 4.5 apg
T-Will has rescued the Cards, who lack a true floor general, with his point-forward skills, powering them to an 8-0 start in the Big East before Monday's loss to UConn.
C: Hasheem Thabeet, Jr., UConn: 13.0 ppg, 10.1 rpg, 4.0 bpg
The Tanzanian import is the biggest game-changer in the country (literally, at 7-3), and his interior presence is the main reason the Huskies have the nation's seventh-most efficient defense.
