Athlon included a note on its selections as follows:

‚ÄúAn important note on the all-conference teams:¬†These are based on how players will perform in 2023. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2023 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year. Also, team strength does not play a role in selections. These are the best individual players at each position in the league for ‚Äô23.”
