NAIA DI – Returning All-Americans

One thing I really enjoy about NAIA basketball is the fact that every league is tough in its own right, and each league has at least a team or two who can go make a serious run at a national championship.  Over the next couple months I will be posting league breakdowns with in-depth looks into each league. The NAIA, as a whole, gets more competitive each year. As you read below, you will see that a few leagues were very senior driven, and it will be interesting to see what the teams in those leagues bring in for the 2019-2020 season. As far as returners go, there are a total of 22 All-Americans from last season who will be returning.  Here is a look at who returns in each conference:
