GO-TO GUY: Brady Dvorak/Will Obioha

Dvorak and Obioha form one of the best duos in North Dakota and should be even better if Obioha takes another step forward. Dvorak led the team in scoring a year ago, averaging 14.8 points and 3.5 assists while knocking down 37 percent of his 3-pointers.

Obioha averaged 12.4 points and 6.3 rebounds per game as a sophomore and is arguably the best college prospect in the 2021 class. At 6-foot-5, he’s an excellent two-way player who has the athleticism to bend the game on both ends of the floor.
