College Basketball Midseason All-Conference Team: A Look Back at Where I was Right and Wrong

We’re halfway through the 2014-2015 college basketball season and that much closer to the thrill of March. Before the season started, I gave my preseason all-conference teams for the Big Ten, ACC, Big 12, Pac-12, SEC, Big East, AAC, Mountain West, A-10 and West Coast. If you’d like a refresher on how my breakdown of each of those conferences looked, click here. Now, with half of the season gone, I figured I would update those teams to show how my midseason all-conference teams look in comparison to at the beginning of the year.
