The Virginia native gets downhill in a flash with the athleticism to get to the rim consistently. Last season, Johnson averaged 9.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game. 

Sophomore center Kel'el Ware transferred from Oregon and provides Indiana with outstanding length and height. Ware (7'0) owns a good face-up game and great leaping ability around the rim. In 2022-23, the Arkansas native averaged 6.6 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per contest. See who to back at SportsLine.

Why Florida Gulf Coast can cover 

Junior forward Zach Anderson is a three-level scorer for the Eagles. Anderson did a great job fighting on the glass to pull down rebounds and owns a jumper that spaces the floor. The Florida native averaged a team-best 6.7 rebounds with 11.7 points per game last season. Additionally, Anderson drained 37% of his 3-pointers and 73% of his free throws. 

Junior center Andre Weir brings nice size and length to the frontcourt. Weir has a soft touch around the rim and takes efficient looks. In 2022-23, the Florida native averaged 9.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and shot 51% from the field. He also piled up double-digit boards in six matchups last season. See who to back at SportsLine.
