Last season: 26-10, lost in the NCAA Tournament round of 32.
Coach: Dana Altman
Key Returners: Elgin Cook, who averaged 13.0 points and 5.2 rebounds last season, along with Dillan Brooks, who averaged 11.5 points. Sophomore forward Jordan Bell, who set a school record with 94 blocks last season, needed surgery for a broken foot earlier this year and he hasn’t returned to full practice.
Who Left: Pac-12 Player of the Year Joseph Young, who averaged 19.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists last season as a senior. He has since gone to the NBA’s Indiana Pacers.
The Skinny: The Ducks welcome senior transfer Dylan Ennis, who played a season at Rice before two seasons at Villanova, last season’s Big East champion. A point guard, Ennis averaged 9.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game for the Wildcats. He’ll provide leadership on the court for the Ducks, who were picked to finish fourth in the Pac-12 preseason media poll.
