Illinois' Ayo Dosunmu returned to school to lead the Illini to the NCAA Tournament and will do so as the best guard in the country.
14. James Bouknight, 6-foot-5 sophomore, Connecticut
Bouknight is a guy a lot of basketball people believe is in for a breakout season. A coach in the AAC had this to say about him: “Love him! So shifty and has such awesome change of pace.” Bouknight can run off screens and score from three levels, and the biggest reason he oozes potential is his ability to make plays off the bounce at 6-5. I’m not sure I’m a believer in his jump shot, which he needs to improve to take the next step, but he’s a guy NBA people will be watching closely this year, because he could be a really gifted scorer if he puts it all together.
