Take a look at the 2017-18 NCAA All-Canadian college basketball teams

You’ve seen the All-American teams. Here are the 2017-18 NCAA All-Canadian teams and honorees.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Florida Matt Stamey-USA TODAY Sports

Some of the best players in college basketball throughout this season and in recent memory are from Canada.

Last year, Dillon Brooks and a host of Canadians on the Oregon roster helped lead the Ducks to a Final Four appearance. Fellow Canadian Duane Notice also led his South Carolina Gamecock’s to the Final Four, where he was knocked off by Gonzaga — who had Vancouver’s Dustin Triano on their roster.

And it looks like this trend will continue. The No. 1 recruit in the class of 2018 is Canadian RJ Barrett, who not only committed to play next season at Duke, but also should be an NBA lottery pick in 2019. Barrett led Canada to the U19 World Championship last summer after he torched a John Calipari-coached USA team for 38 points.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. There are well over 100 Canadians playing NCAA D1 basketball this season. Here is our All-Canadian teams for the 2017-18 season:

Canadian Player of the Year: Kassius Robertson (Missouri).

Robertson was listed as the No. 1 Canadian playing at a mid-major last season, yet nobody seemed to know who he was. Roberston was a graduate transfer from Canisus who was named a first team All-SEC after leading Missouri. He averaged 16.6 points per game this season.
