With the 2011-12 season halfway over, Mike DeCourcy of Sporting News unveiled his picks for Midseason All America. Fifteen players were named on his first, second and third teams and two Kentucky Wildcats made the cut.

Freshman forwards (and roommates) Michael Kidd-Gilchirst and Anthony Davis are each All-Americans according to Sporting News, with Kidd-Gilchrist a first teamer and Davis on the third team.

Here is what DeCourcy had to say about each:

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF, Kentucky, freshman. Is it possible the most complete college player has 16 games of experience? It's not definite, but it's possible. Kidd-Gilchrist already is the Wildcats' top perimeter defender, a player coach John Calipari will assign to defend any of four positions. He is the team's second-leading scorer although UK rarely runs a play for him. He is devastating in transition and scramble situations. His ability to make impactful, winning plays is uncommon for such a young player.

Anthony Davis, C, Kentucky, freshman. The presumptive No. 1-overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, Davis has blocked shots, rebounded and finished above the rim. He has done everything coach John Calipari has asked of him. UK just hasn't asked as much of him as of Kidd-Gilchrist.
