Newbill, a 6’4″ senior guard out of Penn State was a two-time All-Big Ten Second Team selection in 2014 and 2015. Hilliard, a 6’6″ guard/forward out of Villanova received multiple accolades as a senior, including First Team All-BIG EAST and Philadelphia Big Five Player of the Year.
Gray, most know for his 33 points and 30 rebounds game at Delaware State (the first D-1 player with a 30/30 game since the 1970’s), is a 6’10” power forward. Atkins (6’8″ forward) spent all four years at Virginia and was named Lefty Driesell National Defensive Player of the Year. Check out all of their interviews below.
