The Canes, who are currently undefeated in the ACC, have eight players who have played at least 39% of the team's minutes. Five of them are seniors, including the players ranked No. 2 (Trey McKinney Jones), No. 3 (Durand Scott), and No. 4 (Kenny Kadji) in terms of minutes.
67% of their points come from seniors. There's also a possibility that Shane Larkin (sophomore) or Rion Brown (junior) could leave early for a professional career, especially considering the cliff which will follow this season.
According to ESPN, Miami currently has a 4* and two 3* recruits joining the program.
Ken Pomeroy has a stat called "experience" which measures the class level of team by minutes played. By this metric, Valpo is the most experienced team in the nation.
Bryce Drew's squad has six seniors who all play more than 45% of the minutes, and no freshmen-juniors who play even 40%.
The non-seniors are responsible for fewer than 24% of the Crusaders scoring. The good news is that they're currently in the driver's seat for the No. 1 seed in the Horizon League tourney.
Another team with an all senior starting lineup, they find themselves a half game behind New Mexico in the Mountain West and are making a trip tonight to face UNLV. If they win in Vegas, they go home to prepare to host New Mexico this weekend, with a chance to take control of the conference race. A win tonight and one this weekend would also tie them for their most wins ever in a single season.
They're almost certainly going to make the NCAA Tournament, which will be their 2nd straight, but next year is going to be a challenge.
…and it's not all about Khalif Wyatt. Sure, the senior takes over 29% of the shots when he's on the floor, and he's attempted almost twice as many free throws as anyone else on the team. He averages 19.8 points per game, and leads the team with 4.0 assists. But Temple also has four other seniors who play more than 40% of the minutes, including two who play more than 70%. Both Scootie Randall and Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson are the type of all-around stat stuffers who are hard to replace. And Jake O'Brien is a 6-9 guy who makes 42% of his 3s.
Temple is currently in a six-team knot in the middle of the A-10, but every team above them has played an easier conference schedule, so they have the ability to make up some ground down the stretch.
The Bobcats have three players who are averaging double-digit scoring. All are seniors. They have five players who average more than 20 minutes a game. Four are seniors. Their top four rebounders? All seniors.
Ohio is known for DJ Cooper, but it is the support staff around him who have this team in position for a 2nd straight Tourney appearance. Like last year, the main roadblock will be Akron, a team which has one senior in the top-6 of their rotation. So the Bobcats really need to get it done this season.
