41. Valparaiso: Going to be a tremendous team this season. You are seeing that ranking correctly. Bryce Drew's team is capable of winning 30 games. Everybody's back from a team that almost beat Maryland in the NCAA Tournament.Horizon League poll: OU, UDM up high; Felder honored--The Detroit Free Press
103. Oakland: Clear-cut second-best team in the Horizon League this season. Greg Kampe's got Kahlil Felder playing like 39.5 minutes per game, but he's worth all of it. And Max Hooper can hoop. The Grizzlies will also have Iowa State transfer Percy Gibson playing the middle.
152. Wright State: Biggie Minnis transferred in from Rhode Island, and will replace Chrishawn Hopkins and Reggie Arceneaux in the backcourt. That, along with a returning backcourt, should make Wright State a tough out in the Horizon.
164. Milwaukee: Expect the Panthers to be much smoother on offense this season. Rob Jeter's team is the dark horse choice to steal the auto bid in the Horizon from Valpo.
173. Detroit: Losing Juwan Howard will be a hard pill to swallow, but Paris Bass should be an all-league performer under Ray McCallum. A solid mid-league team in the Horizon.
178. Green Bay: Linc Darner's a highly thought of coach, but losing Keifer Sykes, Greg Mays and Alfonzo McKinnie will be tough. Look for Jordan Fouse to take a step forward on offense though after years of being a defensive stopper.
200. Cleveland State: Trey Lewis, who put up 16 points per game, transfers via early graduation and goes to Louisville. That will hurt. Anton Grady, the team's second-best player, transfers via early graduation and goes to Wichita State. Rough stuff for Gary Waters.
261. Northern Kentucky: A new member of the Horizon, NKU still can't play for the league title until 2017. They also feature a new coach in John Brannen, who replaces Dave Bezold.
285. Illnois-Chicago: Old coach: Howard Moore. New coach: Steve McClain. Former Indiana assistant and a guy who won more than 150 games at his previous head-coaching stop, Wyoming.
295. Youngstown State: Probably the worst team in the Horizon League. Poor Penguins. Will this be Jerry Slocum's last season as coach? Another 2-14 spell in league play might do it.
