They will be anchored by seniors Collin Gillespie, Jermaine Samuels, and Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree and rounded out by BIG EAST Freshman of the Year Jeremiah Robinson Earl.

Iowa, who is returning Luka Garza, has the second best odds with Baylor- who is returning Jared Butler and MaCio Teague- is third. Gonzaga and Virginia round out the balance of the Top 5.
