Instead, the point guard opted at the last minute to remain with the Terrapins for his junior season and provide a boost to a program coming off its first Sweet 16 trip since 2003.

For a program returning its entire starting lineup, Michigan hardly resembles itself.

 

Three undergraduates transferred over the summer. Two mainstay assistants landed head coaching jobs. Spike Albrecht and Caris LeVert, the final remnants of the Wolverines’ 2013 Final Four team, departed.  Amid all that change, though, the bricks and mortar of last year’s NCAA Tournament team remain in place. Holding it all up is John Beilein, the 10th-year coach.

The Big Ten will experience a changing of the guard in 2016-17.

 

A league that has supplied college basketball with standout veterans over recent years is losing several of them — Michigan State loses Denzel Valentine, Indiana loses Yogi Ferrell, Iowa loses Jarrod Uthoff, Purdue loses A.J. Hammons. Maryland retained its post important veteran, point guard Melo Trimble, but most of his supporting cast entered the draft.

Two seasons ago, Duke won an NCAA crown with a nucleus of one-and-done talent and experienced complementary parts. Built on nearly the same blueprint, this year’s Blue Devils look poised to do something similar.

 

Three key members of Duke’s 2015 title team and a pair of contributors from last season’s Sweet 16 squad are still around. They’ll play alongside the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class, a group widely considered to the best the program has ever seen.
