Tamenang Choh is the second option for this team as he mans the paint with 14.2 points,8.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists.

Duke Blue Devils
After the departure of Zion Willamson and RJ Barrett, this Blue Devils team is loaded and they have four NBA prospects in their roster right now. Vernon Carey is expected to go top 10 while Tre Jones is a top 20 pick. Matthew Hurt and Wendell Moore can also find themselves an NBA team soon after this year. Beyond those four players, Cassius Stanley is also making a good case to make it into the NBA and also Joey Baker. The team is just too loaded to lose against the Brown Bears and Coach K has this program running well even if there are many one-and-done players going to the NBA.
