Horizon - Wright State

Both Valparaiso and Detroit lost almost all of their talent (although with Bryce Drew I am still not willing to count out Valpo) but Wright State brings back everybody, that’s right, everybody, from a team that finished third in the league and had the conference’s best defense. They’ll also have a full year of Cole Darling, who missed the team’s final two months with an injury.

4. Wright State: Ah, what a difference a year makes. Last preseason, Wright State was picked to finish last in the Horizon League. Heading into this season, the Raiders are the clear-cut favorites to win the conference. Billy Donlon, one of the youngest coaches in college basketball at the ripe old age of 36, enters his fourth season at the helm, bringing back nearly his entire roster — all five starters and last year's top nine scorers return. Wright State fell in the championship game of the Horizon League tournament to Valparaiso, settling for a postseason appearance in the CBI. Being that close will be a surefire drive for this year's veteran-laden squad, which also welcomes Butler transfer Chrishawn Hopkins.
