South Dakota State Jackrabbits

2012-13: 25-10 (13-3)
In-conference offense: 1.18 points per possession (1st)
In-conference defense: 0.99 points per possession (3rd)

Coach Scott Nagy has a challenge ahead of him. On one hand, he brings back three senior starters who played key roles in leading South Dakota State to two straight NCAA tournament berths. On the other, he loses arguably the greatest player to ever don a Jackrabbits jersey in Nate Wolters. Nagy's challenge is not to find a player to single-handedly replace Wolters' production, let alone influence, but rather to develop a new group of role players upon which the veterans can rely.
