25. Michigan State

Tom Izzo is used to overachieving. In 2011, his team did exactly the opposite, struggling early and often as it proved the No. 2 preseason ranking to be massively optimistic. Izzo is hoping for a reboot, a return to the tough, bruising style that guided his previous squads to the past decade's run of consistent success. If he does so, it will have much to do with the performance of senior forward Draymond Green, a versatile point forward who does a little bit of everything. With so many new faces in the starting lineup -- including sophomore point Keith Appling, sophomore center Adreian Payne and a much slimmer version of prodigal forward Derrick Nix -- Green will have to take on more of the scoring load in addition to a major leadership role. -- Eamonn Brennan
