2017-18 HSQBRank All-World Teams

It’s time to announce this year’s HSQBRank All-World Teams.

I’m eschewing the write-ups this year (for now) due to the fact that the PACE NSC starts tomorrow morning. I will try to go back and complete them as soon as I can, though that might not be until after NASAT.

As a reminder, these awards differ from the rankings in that they are not purely based off of a mathematical calculation, but are more arbitrary. I select players based off how much they contributed to their team on tossups and give priority to teams that finished well in the pre-nationals poll. There is no magical formula used; it’s just my best guess at giving these out.

Additionally, these awards are based entirely off of regular season performances. HSNCT performances are not considered.

The awards are after the jump.
