Duke with Okafor/Jones/Winslow won the title with freshman fueling the team.
There’s enough evidence out there to suggest you can win in several ways. The freshman way has worked although usually there’s still a vet or two that plays a big role. Last year was a big thumbs up for the veteran squads.
I think that trend continues into this year if I was making a prediction now. A ton of talent is gone from last year spread throughout every conference. I have a hard time picking 5-10 teams that I think will be good because there was so much roster movement everywhere. No excuses for KU this year with a veteran squad
