A look at some players ranging from household names to burgeoning prospects ready to take their game to the next level this season.
Springy shot blocker and rebounder. Excels in the pick and roll game as a diver to the hoop. Averaged 7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocks.
Imposing workhorse inside. Overpowers opponents but has a soft touch around the rim. Tough to move off the block.
Averaged 9 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2 assists and 1.3 steals as a freshman. Will be asked to fill the void left by TJ Printup. Long swingman that plays above the rim. Good slasher that also has expanding range on his jump shot.
Nearly 7-foot tall. Active in the paint. Growing his off the dribble game. Plays with balance and strength. Quick feet in the post. Rebounds the ball at its highest point. Scores overtop defense with soft touch.
Stretch-four that shoots extremely well. Can go inside and score with his back to the basket but best attribute is his jump shot.
High-motor playmaker that slashes into the lane and looks to create for others. Plays at a quick tempo and is very disruptive on defense.
