Just so you can't accuse us of lacking research depth, dig this alphabetical list of 20 honorable mention selections.
Lawrence Alexander, North Dakota State
The Bison lose five seniors and their head coach, but Alexander has started 98 games over his career. He's more than capable of taking over and keeping his team in the Summit League race.
D.J. Balentine, Evansville
The nation's third-leading returning scorer at 22.8 PPG, Balentine would get much more pub if the Purple Aces were more competitive in the Missouri Valley.
Craig Bradshaw, Belmont
Bradshaw exploded from a seldom-used reserve to a second-team All-OVC performer. He scored 22 on Kentucky in December, then averaged 21 PPG in a run to the NIT quarterfinals.
Julius Brown, Toledo
The MAC West champions return four starters, none more important than Brown. He's out to defend his conference assist title and improve on his team-high 14.9 PPG.
Kyle Collinsworth, BYU
Collinsworth would be in the top 20 if it wasn't for a pesky torn ACL that could cost him the first few games of this season. If fully healthy, he's an All-WCC first-team candidate.
Brett Comer, Florida Gulf Coast
Comer and Bernard Thompson are the only primary contributors left from the 2013 Sweet 16 run. FGCU may roll through the Atlantic Sun virtually unchallenged, and Comer will be a Player of the Year favorite.
A.J. English, Iona
English is a volume scorer (17.2 PPG on 40.6 percent shooting as a sophomore), but he's still the leading scorer on one of America's most underappreciated offenses.
Isaac Fotu, Hawaii
Without leading scorer and rebounder Christian Standhardinger, the Warriors need Fotu to assume both mantles. He's capable—after all, he was a first-team All-Big West pick—but Hawaii won't show up on your TV very often.
Chad Frazier, UAB
Frazier is Conference USA's top returning scorer. The Blazers may be a dark horse if Virginia Tech transfer Robert Brown joins Frazier as a serious threat.
Amir Garrett, Cal State Northridge
The St. John's transfer was a solid rebounder in the Big East, now let's see what he can do in the Big West. CSN returns two all-conference performers for coach Reggie Theus.
Javonte Green, Radford
Sports-Reference.com ranked Green second in America in player efficiency rating (PER) last season. The Highlanders return everyone of significance from last year's 22-win team.
Juan'ya Green, Hofstra
Green was a 17.1 PPG man over his two seasons at Niagara before following coach Joe Mihalich to Hofstra. With Delaware and Towson both taking heavy losses, there may be an opening at the top of the CAA.
Denzel Livingston, Incarnate Word
UIW won't be eligible for the NCAA tournament until 2018, so most of you will never see Livingston play. Still, he averaged 20.3 PPG, 6.4 RPG, 3.8 APG, 2.5 SPG and 1.4 BPG last season.
Shawn Long, Louisiana-Lafayette
There are only four returning players who averaged double-doubles last season. Long will have to become a major focus of the Ragin' Cajuns attack now that Elfrid Payton is headed to the NBA.
Daniel Mullings, New Mexico State
Mullings was an honorable mention All-American selection by the Associated Press, but the Aggies' national presence was largely derived from Sim Bhullar gawkers. Look for Mullings to repeat as WAC Player of the Year.
Cameron Payne, Murray State
Payne finished in the OVC's top 10 in points, assists and steals as a freshman. Expect the Racers to enter the season as the conference favorite, as they went 13-3 and won the CIT in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
T.J. Price, Western Kentucky
Price was All-Sun Belt in each of the past two seasons, and now he'll try to add All-CUSA honors to his bio. He's flanked by solid backcourt talent, but don't expect last season's 15.5 PPG to drop much.
Marcus Thornton, William & Mary
Thornton dropped more than 18 PPG for the second straight season. He'll be key to the Tribe improving on last season, which saw them fall only seconds short of making the NCAA tournament.
Jarvis Williams, Murray State
See Cameron Payne. Williams was a superb addition to the Racers' roster as a junior college transfer, averaging 14.9 PPG and 9.9 RPG on a nation-leading 64.8 percent from the floor.
Kyle Wilson, Army
Army's never been to the NCAA tournament, but Wilson's two seasons (31 wins) have been the Black Knights' best span since some dude named Krzyzewski—or "Kriz-il-lon-ski or some other variation"—was the coach. Wilson led the Patriot League at 18.4 PPG last year. Plus, he's Army, so it's unpatriotic to leave him off the list.
