First team

F - Blake Griffin, so., Oklahoma: The best player in the country. His NCAA days should be numbered.

G - Sherron Collins, jr., Kansas: Runner-up for Big 12 Player of the Year and will receive zero votes.

C - Cole Aldrich, so., Kansas: Has 18 double-doubles. Is arguably the best true post player in the nation.

F - DeMarre Carroll, sr., Missouri: The leader of Missouri's impressive turnaround from last season.

G - James Anderson, so., Oklahoma State: Impressive late surge enough to land him a first-team spot.

F - Damion James, jr., Texas: Averaging a double-double, but has been plagued by inconsistent play.

G - Willie Warren, fr., Oklahoma: His late-season fade cost him a spot on the all-conference first team.
