Location: Milwaukee, Wisc. 
18-19 Record: 27-1
Final Super 25 Rank: 8

Why them: The Knights return one of the strongest 1-2 combinations in the country in Jalen Johnson, who is ranked No. 9 overall in the Chosen 25 for 2020, and Jamari Sibley, who causes matchup problems with his versatility. The pair combined to average 40 points and 20 rebounds a game this past season for the Knights.

Nicolet does lost two captains from last season, point guard Sonny Phinisee and shooting guard David Rosengarten. But bringing back the star duo with role players including Johnson’s younger brother Kobe and James Graham, the team looks set.
