Our picks of the best of the best include special mention for juniors, sophomores and freshmen with a first, second and third team of five players only. Our teams are the last ones chosen each season because we include what happened on the court through the end of the season while most other All-America teams base their selections too much on what happened during the summer camp recruiting season. We also will not honor players from programs that accept fifth-year seniors.

Robert Hines did not score in the first half, but he came alive on both ends of the floor as he and Villanova signee Michael Nardi lead St. Patrick's (17-4) to a 68-60 win over Bergen Catholic (14-3). Hines finished with 15 points, including eleven in the fourth period. He made seven of eight from the charity stripe in the final stanza. He and Nardi combined for 27 of the team's 29 points of the period.
