NESCAC teams ranked in terms of who suffered the biggest (projected / expected) losses (I'm including players who seemingly left the program during the year or appear unlikely to return).  Only rotation players listed:

1. Wesleyan - Sam Peek as a D1 grad transfer (POY, all-American), Jordan James (all-NESCAC, elite rim protector, dominant down the stretch), Antone Walker (overqualified sixth man, 1000 point career scorer), Joe DeLollo (solid back-up big man)

2. Amherst - Garrett Day (2x all-NESCAC), Grant Robinson (1x all-NESCAC), Tim McCarthy (third on the team in made 3's despite playing only 11 games), Dev Allen.  Amherst loses its three leading scorers and 144 out of 211 made 3's from a team that already struggled to hit the three ball.  Although Amherst returns 10 guys from its massive rotation, only 3 of those players made more than 5 threes all season.

3. Tufts - Luke Rogers (former POY, 2x all-NESCAC), Brennan Morris (over 40 percent for his career from 3 despite a tough senior year), Will Brady (started the majority of games)

4. Bates - Stephon Baxter (leading scorer, all-NESCAC, announced intent to transfer so I'm assuming that he is not back), Omar Sarr (leading rebounder and shot-blocker, supposedly left program but not the school), Raheem Spence (tough rebounder and defender), Andrew Snoddy (solid rotation big who was, it appears, injured and missed his last semester)

5. Trinity - Donald Jorden (leading scorer and rebounder, all-NESCAC), Tyler Mola (rotation guard), Darius Lue (rotation guard), Kualim Johnson (promising forward who seems to have quit the program during last season; no longer listed on roster)

6. Hamilton - Nick Osarenren (DPOY, second-leading scorer), Elliott Tirbaso (starting guard).  Eric Anderson is, however, back for a fifth year.

7. Colby - Matt Hannah (second on team in points and assists, 1000 point career scorer)

8. Williams - Jovan Jones (elite defender, two year starter), Robert Taylor (44 percent from 3 as a senior)

Middlebury, Bowdoin and Conn College did not suffer significant losses to graduation, and should all be much-improved.

For the second time in three years, an Eph will have a chance to win the NBA championship!

Trinity College with two really impressive late picks-ups … in particular Jarrell Okurogou, ranked 61 in New England, who had, at least at one point, offers from UMass, Sienna and Albany.  Looks like a big-time athlete.  Trinity also added Dane Moran, a skilled and productive 6’9 big man from Lawrenceville School in NJ.  I imagine there is an interesting story regarding how Okurogou ended up in Nescac as he definitely seems like a higher-level talent (he was all-NEPSAC Class AA, you just don’t see those dudes in D3).

Adding those two guys to a young nucleus of Callahan-Gold, Dorion and Otoo, Trinity is a team to watch as that group matures.
