Ron Patterson - IUPUI

The Jaguars will make the transition to the Horizon League without last season’s top three scorers. Patterson, who thrived as the team’s sixth-man last year, will have every opportunity to showcase the talent that once made him a coveted high-major recruit. In conference play last year, Patterson shot 45 percent from distance on just under five attempts per game. Coming in at just under 10 points per game last year, Patterson should be able to make the adjustment to carrying a heavier scoring load for the Jags this year.

Second July Evaluation Period Breakout
An athletic combo guard from Detroit, Harlond Beverly showed his major upside at the NY2LA Swish N Dish. He has big time athleticism, good size, and a fairly solid understanding of how to play the position. Beverly needs to keep improving as a jump shooter, but the class of 2019 prospect is making strides in that area.

10 Transfers Fresh Off Sitting Out a Year Ready to Impact Their New Teams--CBB Central
#6. Kameron Chatman-Detroit

Some outlets had Chatman as a 5-star prospect coming out of high school. While he didn’t live up to that hype in his two seasons at Michigan, he will get a chance to redeem himself the next 2 years, and that’s bad news for the rest of the Horizon League. Chatman is a beast of a wing who struggled with his jump shot while with the Wolverines. However, with a redshirt year to improve his game and the drop in competition level, Chatman should be able to to impose his will off the bounce and in the post. If the shooting has improved, Chatman is one of the most talented players in the Horizon League.

#1 Kendrick Nunn-Oakland

Oakland won 25 games last season and brings back 4 starters. That would be scary enough for most teams. However, Greg Kampe’s squad adds Nunn to the mix too, an extremely talented guard who scored over 15 ppg at Illinois before being kicked off the team. Nunn is one of the best players in all of mid-major basketball, and elite scorer who can get buckets from anywhere on the court. His strength and size allow him to be an excellent defender as well, and Kampe mentioned in an interview on the Marching to Madness podcast with Blake Lovell and Ken Cross that Nunn is getting already getting looks from NBA teams. Nunn may be the piece that helps Oakland put their recent Horizon League Tournament struggles behind them and get the Golden Grizzlies back to the NCAA Tournament.
