Fredette, Pullen headline SI.com's preseason All-America teams
Upperclassmen dominate the three All-America teams, claiming 13 of 15 slots
Harrison Barnes and Elias Harris are the only underclassmen on the three teams
Morehead State big man Kenneth Faried is the best player you've never heard of
As the 2010-11 season nears tipoff, here are SI.com's three preseason All-America teams, as well as honorable mentions.
G: Jimmer Fredette, BYU
'09-10 stats: 22.1 ppg, 4.7 apg, 44.0% 3FG
Fredette, who pulled his name out of the NBA draft just before the deadline in May, could be the most lethal -- and efficient -- backcourt scorer in college hoops. Last season he dropped 49 on Arizona, 45 on TCU, and 37 on Florida in the opening round of the NCAAs.
G: Jacob Pullen, Kansas State
19.3 ppg, 3.4 apg, 39.6% 3FG
Pullen's Abe Lincoln-like beard was feared in the Big 12, but so was his shot, as he made 110 threes and put the Wildcats within one win of the Final Four. He arrived as a three-star afterthought in the Michael Beasley recruiting class of 2007, but will end up having a far more substantial K-State legacy than "The Beas."
G: Nolan Smith, Duke
17.4 ppg, 3.0 apg, 39.2% 3FG
The veteran combo guard played a major role in the Blue Devils' run to the national title -- particularly in the Elite Eight, when he scored 29 to key a seven-point win over Baylor. He could have an NBA future after holding his own against pros on USA Basketball's Select team this summer.
F: Kyle Singler, Duke
17.7 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 39.9% 3FG
Singler -- last seen being blindsided by a Matt Howard screen at the end of the national title game -- was the lone collegian who pulled out of the NBA draft despite having a first-round guarantee. He said he liked college too much and wanted another championship, which should be well within reach if he keeps creating matchup problems with his well-polished, inside-outside skill set.
F: Harrison Barnes, North Carolina
Scout.com's No. 1-rated player in Class of 2010
He's the most complete freshman scorer to arrive in college hoops since Kevin Durant, and Barnes comes in at a time when the Tar Heels desperately need an offensive infusion on the perimeter. He makes the game look easy, gliding with and without the ball, and could easily average 20 points and seven rebounds as a freshman.
G: Malcolm Delaney, Virginia Tech
20.2 ppg, 4.5 apg, 3.7 rpg
G: Kalin Lucas, Michigan State
14.8 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 35.4% 3FG
G: Shelvin Mack, Butler
14.1 ppg, 3.0 apg, 3.7 rpg
F: Marcus Morris, Kansas
12.8 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 57.0% FG
F: JaJuan Johnson, Purdue
15.5 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 2.1 bpg
G: LaceDarius Dunn, Baylor
19.6 ppg, 41.9% 3FG, 116 3s made
G: E'Twaun Moore, Purdue
16.4 ppg, 2.7 apg, 3.8 rpg
F: Elias Harris, Gonzaga
14.9 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 45.1% 3FG
F: Kenneth Faried, Morehead State
16.9 ppg, 13.0 rpg, 1.9 bpg
F: Jon Leuer, Wisconsin
15.4 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.3 bpg
Honorable Mention: Lavoy Allen, Temple; Keith Benson, Oakland; Alec Burks, Colorado; Noah Dahlman, Wofford; Kim English, Missouri; Corey Fisher, Villanova; Austin Freeman, Georgetown; Ashton Gibbs, Pittsburgh; Kyrie Irving, Duke; Kevin Jones, West Virginia; Brandon Knight, Kentucky; Adrian Oliver, San Jose State; Donald Sims, Appalachian State; Jared Sullinger, Ohio State; Durrell Summers, Michigan State; Isaiah Thomas, Washington; Trey Thompkins, Georgia; Klay Thompson, Washington State; Tai Wesley, Utah State; Tre'Von Willis, UNLV.
