American (20-12, 13-5 Patriot)-The Eagles completed one of the nation’s most impressive turnarounds in 2014, going from 10-20 to Patriot League champs. American is one of the nation’s stingier defensive teams, ranking sixth in points allowed per game (58.6) and 22nd in points allowed per possession (0.94). Four scorers average in double figures for the Eagles, led by 6-5 sophomore guard Jesse Reed (13.9 ppg).

They’ve got some ridiculous names, but 6-10 senior Tony Wroblicky and 6-5 guard John Schoof can ball as well. Wroblicky (12.1 ppg, 7.3 rpg) shoots his free throws one-handed, and that pretty much tells you all you need to know about him. He shoots 71 percent from the line. Not many low-seeded teams have big men with his size and skill level, so

American has some downright awful losses this season, having fallen to Mount St. Mary’s, Brown, George Mason, Lafayette, Loyola (MD) and Columbia.
