NBA draft departures shake up Way-Too-Early Top 25

The deadline for early entrants to declare for the NBA draft has passed, so it's time to re-evaluate the early top 25 for 2018-19. With so many players testing the waters yet not signing with an agent, it's more art than science.

Hoops royalty leads Way-Too-Early Top 25

Villanova reigns as national champion. How does the field stack up for next season? Here's your first look at the best of the best for next season.

Tracy McGrady would rather Bazley go to college, not G-League (1:22)

Syracuse sophomore Matthew Moyer announces he's transferring. Averaged 3.2 points and 3.4 rebounds this season. Should have three years of eligibility after redshirting last year.

Williams: Bagley and Carter the difference for Duke (0:51)

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

No. 2 seed Duke survives a nail-biter over Syracuse, 69-65, in the second Midwest Region semifinal, earning a date with top seed Kansas on Sunday in Omaha for a spot in the Final Four. Freshman Marvin Bagley III scored 22 and grabbed 12 boards for the Blue Devils. The Elite Eight matchup will mark the first game between KU and Duke since 2013 and a rematch of the 1991 championship game, won by Mike Krzyzewski's Hurley-Hill-Laettner group.

It's almost like Syracuse and Duke know each other well. Aside from the zone-defense, like-mindedness of the Jim Boeheim and Mike Krzyzewski systems this year, the ACC rivals played less than a month ago ahead of this Sweet 16 matchup in Omaha -- which the Blue Devils lead 34-27 at the half. Both teams have attacked the other's zone, getting inside regularly to result in high-percentage shots. As expected, though, points remain at a premium after the Devils' 60-44 win in the previous meeting.

Paul Sabin ESPN Analytics 

Villanova won the NCAA tournament as an 8 seed in 1985, the lowest seed to win it all. Between Florida State, Kansas State, Loyola, and Syracuse there is now a 7 percent chance of a 9 or 11 seed winning it all this year (per espn.com/bpi).
