This is not where you will find tears being shed for the likes of Kentucky, Kansas or Syracuse. 

John Calipari might be the only coach in the country who can lose two players to the pros and his roster still improves. The loss of Ben McLemore stings at Kansas, but Bill Self expected it and he recruited to fill McLemore's void. Jim Boeheim will replace his starting point guard for the second straight season, and he brought in another McDonald's All American to take the spot. 

Unlike those schools, this list is for the teams that will have a difficult time filling the shoes of the departed, and in several cases, the coaches would not have anticipated the losses two months ago or even two days ago. Obviously, the list could change based on upcoming decisions.

These are the 10 teams that have been hurt most by early entrants thus far.
