Precautions taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the United States have brought the 2019-20 men's college basketball season to an abrupt end.

In all likelihood, the ACC would have sent a handful of teams to the NCAA tournament. Florida State, Louisville and Duke seemed destined for top-four seeds, while a late-season surge had Virginia on track for a top-seven position.

However, that's where the story ends.

Best NBA Draft Prospects

Cole Anthony, UNC

Once considered the No. 1 overall prospect, Anthony played at his highest level late in the regular season. However, he closed with a few rough performances and scored only 24 points in UNC's last three contests. He will be valued for his versatility, but his efficiency and decision-making will be scrutinized in the pre-draft process.


Devin Vassell, Florida State

Vassell will be valued for his three-and-D ability. This season, he averaged a team-high 12.7 points with a 41.5 three-point clip. He also contributed 5.1 rebounds, 1.4 steals and a block per game.


Patrick Williams, Florida State

While the draft is always a projection, Williams is the kind of prospect who demands a fair bit of guessing. He played 22.5 minutes per game, tallying 9.2 points and 4.0 rebounds in a complementary role. Scouts will be drawn to his mix of power, shooting touch and defensive involvement.


Tre Jones, Duke

Jones made enormous progress as a shooter and lifted his three-point percentage from 26.2 to 36.1. As a sophomore, he notched 16.2 points and 6.4 assists per game while showing off consistent value as a defender.


Vernon Carey Jr., Duke

The big question for Carey's future is how the NBA values his skill set. His production17.8 points and 8.8 reboundswill deservedly attract first-round attention, but he will need to convince teams of his defensive upside.
