Handing out the Hardware: All-Conference Awards of 2016 (Part 1 of 2)

The end of the calendar year means that it is time to recognize the best players in college basketball. HoopsHD’s Jon Teitel has reviewed the entire non-conference season and is ready to announce his picks for the 5 best players from each conference based on their all-around stats. Players are listed in a traditional 5-position lineup (G-G-F-F-C) whenever possible with several exceptions, with the best ones in each conference honored as POYSF (Player of the Year So Far). If you think he has overlooked anyone then feel free to post your feedback in the comments section below, and check back later this weekend for the remaining conferences in Part 2.
