A college basketball team without their star...

What teams would do good and what teams would do bad without their star player?

Indiana- Without Eric Gordon I still think Indiana would do well because of D.J. White.

UCONN- With no Jerome Dyson UCONN would be able to do good because Craig Austrie is one of the best sixth man in the country.

USC- O.J. Mayo is almost all they got.

Kansas State- Same problem as USC but with Michael Beasely

UNC- Tyler Hansbrough is not all they got. They would be a #2 or even still a #1 seed without the vicious rebounder.

Tennessee- Chris Lofton carried them decently but not enough that without him they will be kicked out of the tournament.

Any other ideas?

Top College prospects

This should be another good raft with Chris Lofton, Brandon Rush and many other great players coming out of college. I was just wondering who you think the Timberwolves or Super-Sonics will draft first or should be drafted first.

If the Super-Sonics get the first round pick I think they should draft Eric Gordon if he goes into the NBA. If not a guy like Chris Lofton could also help their weak point-guard position and add to their already young team.

The Timberwolves are also weak at the point-guard position and should also take a point-guard like Lofton or Gordon. On the other side of Al Jefferson they need some help so maybe Brandon Rush can full-fill that need?

Top 5 Prospects [my opinion]:

D.J. Augustin

Brandon Rush

Chris Lofton

Eric Gordon

Derrick Low

Any opinions on the draft order?
