Youth will once again be served in college basketball next year.
While three of the four teams to make the 2014 Final Four had rosters full of upperclassmen, it was the younger players that dominated all our interest for much of the 2013-14 season. That's going to once again be the case next fall, when the newbies and up-and-coming sophomores garner most of the attention and all of the hype.
There will be youthful stars throughout Division I next season, but six teams in particular look to be stacked with freshman and sophomore superstars who will make up at least 40 percent of their projected playing rotation.
We can't make any promises that one or more of these will find themselves at the 2015 Final Four in Indianapolis, but if they do, it will be because of how those young guns transform into battle-tested veterans over the course of the season.
