Back in April, the day after CHN announced its 08-09 All-Americans, I took a stab at projecting the 2009-10 squads. I made a good amount of guesses about who was returning to school.. many of which I was wrong about (see ya later Steph Curry and Jeff Teague, welcome back Patrick Patterson). Now that rosters have settled in and I've recently updated my preseason Top 50, its a good time to update my 2009-10 All-America picks. (Note that this is not CHN's official list, but my own).
