Dick Vitale's mideason college basketball All-Americans

Raymond Carlin III/USA TODAY Sports

This has been a wild and wacky first half of the college basketball season. COVID-19 has taken its toll on a number of programs that have shut down. Many games have been canceled, some rescheduled, and there has been inconsistency.

Yet we have still seen enough good talent perform at a high level to put together our annual midseason All-America teams.

I know these selections will lead to some debates. I love to give my opinions and go out on a limb, baby!

No surprise that Luka Garza highlights the first team. He has been close to a double-double guy night-in and night-out.

With Gonzaga the top team all season, it is not a surprise to see them well-represented. Three Zags are on my first two teams.

Several members have looked good in limited time on the court, but we have over a month before we determine our final All-Solid Gold, Rolls Royce players.
