JP Pegues, Point Guard: Furman

Furman guard JP Pegues is the type of floor leader the Hoosiers need. Pegues takes care of the basketball; his assist-to-turnover ratio is nearly 2.5 to 1. He can shoot and hit free throws. Most importantly, the Tennessee native is a veteran who has played a lot of basketball, leading Furman to the NCAA tournament in 22-23.

Clark Slajchert, Point Guard: Penn

Is it stereotypical to say that the Quaker guard is a smart player? It might be, but that doesn't mean the Ivy League standout point guard isn't an intelligent player. Slajchert led the Quakers in scoring and was second in the conference in the same category. He can shoot the three and is a solid ball distributor.

Ja'Kobi Gillespie, Point Guard: Belmont

Beyond the obvious things like scoring, shooting, and passing, Belmont guard Ja'Kobi Gillespie has two years of eligibility left. He made a significant leap from his freshman to sophomore year. Gillespie improved his two- and three-point shooting, free-throw shooting, and assists. He also led the conference in steals. Gillespie's defensive prowess would be welcome to a team that struggled defending the perimeter last season.
