Our voting panel got together once again picked the preseason Mid-Major All-American teams.

Preseason Player of the Year

Kyle Wiltjer, Gonzaga Bulldogs

Kyle Wiltjer is our Mid-Major Madness Preseason Player of the Year and one of two players that join that MMM Preseason 1st team after appearing on the final 2015 1st team (Fred Van Vleet was also a first teamer). Wiltjer returns to Gonzaga after posting 16.8 points and 6.2 rebounds in his first season in Spokane a year ago. Wiltjer is looking to lead a talented frontcourt for Mark Few that also features Domantas Sabonis and Przemek Karnowski.  Can they finally lead the Zags to the promised land?
