The NBA draft’s early-entry list is finally set. Most of the top high school recruits have chosen their college programs, and transfers have decided on new schools. Though the offseason still has a ways to go, let’s break down college basketball’s 10 winners and losers thus far.
Three SEC teams lead the “offseason losers” while one Big Ten coach can celebrate like no other.
Tom Crean, Indiana Hoosiers
No one had a better offseason than Indiana’s coach. The Hoosiers were worried about losing any and all of the trio of Yogi Ferrell, James Blackmon Jr. and Troy Williams. Crean is getting all three back, and Indiana added Thomas Bryant (No. 22 on ESPN 100), one of the most talented big men in the country. The Hoosiers go into the 2015-16 season with high expectations and should compete for one of the top spots in the Big Ten.
