C Soph., Indiana
He was projected as a top five pick before the season. Now pro scouts worry about the 7-footer's short wingspan (6'8") and ability to score against defenders his size. Against Syracuse, Zeller scored 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting and was repeatedly thwarted at the rim. "Length really bothers him," says the West exec. "And he's not a trail big, who can pick-and-pop and make threes. He could be this year's Perry Jones. He could really fall."
Prospects: Late lottery
C Sr., Bucknell
The 6'11", 239-pound Muscala capped a stellar four-year career by leading the nation in double doubles (22). Muscala had a significant size and strength advantage against Patriot League defenders; his matchup with Butler's 6'11", 243-pound Andrew Smith would be telling. Muscala scored nine points on 4-of-17 shooting. "You can see his skills," says the East exec. "But he needs to develop. If I were taking him, I'd try to get him to play in Europe for a couple of years."
Prospects: Mid second round
