Alec Peters, PF, Valparaiso

The future of this franchise seems very much in flux. Peters, one of college basketball's top shooters, is the type of player who can come in tomorrow and make an impact. No, he may not have NBA athleticism, but Peters and his remarkable 60.4 percent true shooting percentage in college works for any NBA team. A team that needs to win now like Toronto would be wise in taking a college senior like Peters.

The big question: Since John Brannen’s NKU men’s basketball program is returning the nucleus of a team that advanced to the 2017 NCAA Tournament, how will the Norse handle the expectations that follow success?

Another story to watch: Former UK assistant Camryn Whitaker didn’t do a lot of winning (9-22) in her first year as NKU women’s hoops coach, but her energetic recruiting has yielded eight new players in her 2017 recruiting class and at least two well-regarded in-state commitments (so far) for 2018.
