7. West Virginia

This is another one that is hard to justify so low, but beyond Juwan Staten, I am fairly unimpressed with the other Mountaineer backcourt players.

6. Oklahoma State

It’s great for the Cowboys to be this high up given the loss of lottery pick Marcus Smart, but they’re finding a way to stay relevant.

5. Texas

This feels just about right for Texas because while Isaiah Austin is great, much of Texas’ dominance comes from their bigs.
