Conference Preview: SEC

This article is part of our Conference Preview series.

At Kentucky, the players change but the expectations are the same. The team should once again dominate the SEC and make some noise in the NCAA tournament, while the rest of the conference plays for second and Big Dance scraps. The other 13 teams have plenty of talent and a non-Kentucky player may be the top returning fantasy prospect. Ben Simmons may be gone, but fantasy players do not have to go digging far beyond the bluegrass to find talented stat producers.

TOP PLAYERS

Moses Kingsley (C)

After spending two seasons as a reserve, the 6-foot-10 Kingsley burst onto the scene with the Razorbacks and provided excellent numbers for coach Mike Anderson. The senior averaged 15.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks. With center eligibility in many leagues, Kingsley will be among the top players drafted. He had 16 double-doubles and nearly had a triple-double in the Dec. 12 win over Tennessee Tech with 10 points, 13 rebounds, and eight blocks. The Nigerian fouled out of three of his first five games, but was not eliminated from another contest for the rest of the season.

Bam Adebayo (F - freshman)

With freshmen, there is always a bit of guesswork. With a team like Duke and Kentucky, there will be some first-year players who do not make a huge impact even after big hype. I don't think Adebayo will fall short of expectations. The 6-10. 255 lb center should anchor the Wildcat defense and vie with Kingsley for the conference lead
