2019/2020 Record: 24-7 (15-5 ACC)
Key Returns: Malik Williams (8.5 PPG, 6.1 RPG), David Johnson (6.3 PPG,49.3 FG%)
Key Losses: Jordan Nwora (NBA Draft) ,Steven Enoch (Graduated), Dwayne Sutton (Graduated), Ryan McMahon (Graduated),
Key Recruits/Transfers: Carlik Jones (Transfer from Radford), Charles Minlend Jr. (Transfer from San Francisco), D’Andre Davis (4 Star Recruit) , JJ Traynor (4-Star Recruit).
Lousiville loses a lot with their top 4 scorers either graduating or declaring for the draft. They did get one of the top transfers in Carlik Jones, who proved in his time at Radford that he can lead a team and he will have to do just that in a talented ACC. Louisville is also going to need big leaps from David Johnson and Samuel Williamson, who showed flashes last season and with the increased action this year have a chance at being all ACC members.
2019/2020 Record: 19-12 (10-10 BIG 10)
Key Returns: Isaiah Livers (12.9 PPG, 4 RPG), Franz Wagner (11.6 PPG, 5.6 RPG), Eli Brooks (10.6 PPG, 3.7 RPG), David DeJulius (7 PPG, 41.7 FG%)
Key Losses: Zavier Simpson (Graduated) and Jon Teske (Graduated)
Key Recruits/Transfers: Hunter Dickinson (4-Star Recruit), Zeb Jackson (4-Star Recruit), Terrance Williams (4-Star Recruit), Mike Smith (Transfer from Columbia)
Michigan is known as one of the biggest losers of the offseason after losing its commitment from top 10 player Isaiah Todd and not being able to land Top 10 recruit Josh Christopher despite being seen as the favorite.They should be considred the opposite however, as they landed three 4 star recruit including 7’2 point center in Hunter Dickinson. They also get 22 PPG scorer Mike Smith to partner with three ten point scoring returners. Coach Juwan Howard has a lot of talent on this team, and he will need every last bit of it in argueably the toughest conference next season.
2019/2020 Record: 19-12 (9-9 Big 12)
Key Returns: Matt Coleman (12.7 PPG, 3.4 APG), Andrew Jones (11.5 PPG, 38 3P%), Courtney Ramey (10.9 PPG, 3.9 RPG), Jericho Sims (9.7 PPG, 8.2 RPG), Jase Febres (9.3 PPG, 37 3P%),
Key Losses: None
Key Recruits/Transfers: Greg Brown (5-Star Recruit)
Texas is bringing back an absurd amount of players for a Power 6 school, with their 5 main scorers all returning. With an extra year of experience and the arrival of top 10 recruit and top power forward Greg Brown, the Longhorns are a serious threat to take the Big 12 crown.
