NBCSports.com's All-America teams, by Mike Miller
Peyton Siva, Louisville
The driving force behind the Cardinals' Final Four run, Siva's game is built on speed and defense. He can't stretch a defense with his shooting, but he can turn it into Swiss cheese through dribble penetration before finishing at the rim or finding an open man. Teams try to wear down the 5-11 senior. Doesn't work.
Pierre Jackson, Baylor
Guarding Jackson's an impossible task. The 5-10 senior was a welcome addition to the Bears' backcourt last season, a consistent presence on a talented team. He'll be asked to do that again as Baylor's still loaded with talent at all positions. But Jackson's the best of them.
James Michael McAdoo, North Carolina
Everyone's pick to be this season's Thomas Robinson -- the talented kid who finally gets enough playing time to match his talent level. The 6-9 forward also faces the same thing Robinson has last year at Kansas, in that he must carry the scoring and rebounding load for the Heels until things fall into place by season's end.
C.J. Leslie, N.C. State
If Leslie doesn't average a double-double this season, we'll be shocked. Few players possess his blend of size and athleticism and a motor to match. The 6-8 junior can dominate the post, but doesn't overstep when the team needs him to focus on defense and rebounding.
