The Baylor Bears bring a lot of athleticism and a former St. John's commit in the huge Rico Gathers. Both teams will likely mess with some different player combinations to see what works and what doesn't; but the Bears have a fairly set pecking order in their 10-deep position chart. They have a talented center in Isaiah Austin (who can disappear at times), hard work forwards in Cory Jeferson and Gathers. Baylor has shooters in Brady Heslip and Gary Franklin.

St. John's brings almost as much athleticism, but less experience - and less in the way of locked-in player roles. Sir`Dominic Pointer played 4 minutes after suffering a hip pointer (bruise). Coach Steve Lavin commented to the NY Post and NY Daily News that he wished that he had used more of his bench - and that the Johnnies' defense faltered late.
