Despite making their fans sweat it out, the Fighting Turgeons ended the season with the best overall record in the deepest conference in the country this past year. Led by potential draft picks Anthony Cowan Jr (16.3 ppg) and Jalen Smith (15.5), this Terrapin team was a threat to make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. It was back-to-back OVC championships for the Bruins, which would've given them their 9th trip to the NCAA Tournament since 2006. What's even more impressive is the youth that this team possesses, which bodes well for the future for 1st-year Head Coach Casey Alexander's program. Leading scorers Adam Kunkel (16.5 ppg) and Nick Muszynski (15.3 ppg) are just sophomores. Only Boston University-transfer Tyler Scanlon is the lone senior in that top 5. Also, whoever would've drawn these pesky Bruins would be getting a team playing at their peak, as they enter the Bracket of Doom winners of their last 12 games in a row.
