  • 9. Duke: Jon Scheyer has the best recruiting class in the country.
  • 21. Florida: Colin Castleton and Kyle Lofton will make matchups difficult for SEC opponents.
  • 22. Purdue: Zach Edey has the middle to himself and that could spell trouble for foes.
  • 33. Xavier: Sean Miller will have the Musketeers back where they belong — in the NCAA tournament.
