DraftExpress began releasing its list of the top NBA prospects in the Big Ten this week and two Indiana players rank No. 1 and No. 2. Sophomores OG Anunoby and Thomas Bryant rank first and second, respectively.
Anunoby, a 6-foot-8, 217-pound forward, is projected as a small forward in the NBA by DraftExpress. He averaged 4.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game as a freshman but his role increased after James Blackmon Jr. suffered a season-ending injury.

Bryant, a former 5-star recruit who was named a preseason All-American by several publications, projects as an NBA center, according to DraftExpress. The 6-foot-10 center averaged 11.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per game last season.
