My AP All-America, player of the year and coach of the year picks

AP voters are annually asked to select our college player of the year, coach of the year and three All-America teams. The AA teams don't have to be in the c-f-f-g-g format, but have to at least conceivably be able to take the floor together.

Unless you want a "position-less" team ...

Anyway, here are my selections. Threw the AAC a bone with Nic Moore on third team. Sue me. And as for player of the year, I get that Denzel Valentine is terrific and maybe a more well-rounded player. But I can't deny a player so offensively brilliant and efficient and skilled as Buddy Hield. He's a rare breed.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Buddy Hield, Oklahoma

COACH OF THE YEAR
Tubby Smith, Texas Tech

FIRST TEAM

Buddy Hield, Oklahoma
Denzel Valentine, Michigan State
Brice Johnson, North Carolina
Ben Simmons, LSU

Perry Ellis, Kansas

THIRD TEAM

Josh Hart, Villanova
Domantas Sabonis, Gonzaga
