As Breitbart Sports prepares to once again announce the first All-American basketball team and lay out predictions on the 68 teams selected on March 11 to play in this year’s NCAA tournament.

Value Add has selected the 68 players we would pick today if the tournament were between players, rather than teams.

The conference champion of all 32 Division 1 conferences is invited, along with 36 more at large teams. We mirror that below by taking the most valuable player in all 32 Conferences and noting them as “MVP” under their conference, then adding the other 36 best players who are not the top in their conference.

For those interested in reviewing all the top injuries and returning players who could affect how well a team does in the tournament, click on the Pudner Sports list, and to sort all 4,069 players by team, conference or call click on the www.valueaddbasketball.com database.

While 24 conferences place only one or two players on this list, the following eight conferences provide the rest of the top players:
Big 12 – 8 players
B Ten – 7
ACC – 6
Big East – 6
American Athletic – 4
SEC – 4
A10 – 3
P12 – 3
