Each week during the college basketball season, ESPN Insiders Jay Bilas and Jeff Goodman will weigh in on the biggest questions in the sport.

The discussion: Who are your midseason All-America picks?

Jay Bilas: Here are my picks:

Doug McDermott, F, Creighton Bluejays: McDermott is the best player in college basketball, period. He has great versatility, can play inside and out and makes great decisions with or without the ball. He also rebounds and is tough as nails. McDermott competes and handles every defense that is thrown at him.
