Justin Stommes, a 6-7 guard who shot 41.5 percent behind the arc, is among four seniors for Eastern Kentucky, which adds four transfers and five freshmen. The Colonels, who also played in the CBI tourney, ranked second nationally in 3-pointers per game.

Junior Kevin Murphy and senior post Alfred Jones are among nine players back for Tennessee Tech but the Golden Eagles lose two 1,000-point scorers. The Golden Eagles will be bolstered by Georgia transfer Zac Swansey and Marquette 7-foot transfer Liam McMorrow.

Sophomores Robert Covington and Jacquan Nobles are among only four returning players for Tennessee State. Jacksonville State must replace OVC scoring leader Trenton Marshall, but Nick Murphy returns along with school 3-point record holder Jeremy Bynum.
