News On The Horizon 7/2/2013

A complete breakdown of conference realignment for 2013-2014--CollegeBasketballTalk
HORIZON: The Horizon League loses Loyola-Chicago to the MVC, but replaces them with Oakland from the Summit League.

SUMMIT: The Summit League loses Oakland and UMKC (who is headed to the WAC), but they did bring in a good Denver program from the WAC.

MISSOURI VALLEY: The MVC takes a hit with Creighton leaving for the Big East, but they get replaced by Loyola-Chicago, bringing in the league’s first major metropolitan area.

Top Ten Mid-Major Big Men to Watch in 2013-14--Mid-Major Madness
Alec Brown, Wisconsin-Green Bay: It was a tumultuous offseason in Green Bay as the Phoenix narrowly avoided another Rutgers/Mike Rice situation. Senior big man Alec Brown should be able to give the Horizon League school some stability. The 7'1 Minnesota native is coming off a season in which he averaged 14 points and 6 rebounds per game. Brown's scoring numbers have gone up each year but his rebounding numbers dropped a bit this past season. If Brown wants to take his talents to the next level he'll need to hit the boards hard once again in his senior year.
Corey Petros, Oakland: The junior big man should make the Golden Grizzlies maiden voyage into the Horizon Leauge a little easier. Petros lead the team in field goal percentage last year at 56.5% and added nearly 13 points and 8 rebounds per game. If Greg Kampe squad has immediate success in their new conference then a large part of it will be because of Petros.

A Sacramento Kings
Round 1:
Ben McLemore, G, Kansas

Round 2:
Ray McCallum, G, Detroit

It was Christmas in Sacramento when Ben McLemore fell to the Kings at No. 7. I'll say it again: McLemore is as close to a surefire All-Star as I have seen. He coasts sometimes, but Joe Johnson had a similar reputation when he came out of Arkansas in 2001. That seemed to work out OK, didn't it? Ray McCallum at No. 36 was a nice pick, too. He was one of the most talked-about players at the combine last month.
