    Projected Starters
    Ahmad Rorie - Former Cal commit who will be expected to run the point for Altman.
    Joseph Young - Potential P12 POY who may lead the conference in scoring.
    Dillon Brooks - Originally a 2015 recruit who re-classified and will play this year.
    Elgin Cook - Along with Young, the only returnee who averaged more than 7 mpg last year.
    Jordan Bell - 2013 recruit who was ineligible last year, but should provide D for the Ducks.

    With only two players from last year's squad who played more than 7 mpg returning, there are plenty of opportunities for someone to emerge with the Ducks. Young will get his points this year (@jgisland has already said elsewhere he may lead the nation in both scoring and usage) and carry the team, but can he get any help? His best bet may be from Brooks. Even though he's young, the 6'7" forward has the skills to provide a nice 1-2 combo with Young. It's going to be interesting to see if Altman's job is in trouble after all of the drama of this last off-season. His best bet is to land a solid recruiting class and get Young to the pros.

    One thing that's very clear as I look over the rest of the conference is that everyone has at least one good guard.

    CU's success this year in the Pac-12 will very much come down to how dominant Jelly & Company can be in the front court. Arizona's got great bigs and UCLA always has talented size, but no one else has ****.
