9. TCU

Ahead of TTU, but not by much, is Texas Christian. Senior Kyan Anderson leads the Horned Frogs, with Trey Zeigler and Hudson Price supporting him. They combine to average slightly more points and assists than TTU and shoot better overall, but there isn’t much else noteworthy.

Considering Anderson is a senior as well, TCU is another team that will be looking for a new standout guard in the near future.

8. Baylor

It’s tough to rank Baylor so far down, because they do have talent. However, Brady Heslip‘s graduation meant the loss of the team’s best sharpshooter and the Bears have always been a team focused on the frontcourt.

Kenny Chery is the star here with 11 ppg and 3.8 apg. He is supported by Lester Medford and Al Freeman, the latter of which might be Baylor’s PG of the future. They are average shooters at a unit and have average assist numbers, but they are higher than TTU and TCU because of the production this season and years past.

Chery’s upcoming graduation will leave a big hole that is not readily filled by anyone outside of Freeman that I see on the roster.
