Outlook: Marquette centers on 7-1 Jim McIlvaine (first in the nation with 4.6 bpg) and point guard Tony Miller (second nationally with 8.5 apg). For Southwestern Louisiana, Michael Allen (22.9 ppg, 133 assists) and Byron Starks (18.4 ppg) are a top-notch backcourt. Kentucky still is looking for consistency, and for someone to take the scoring pressure off G Tony Delk (16.9 ppg) and F Rodrick Rhodes (15.9 ppg). Tennessee State, )) Oprah Winfrey's alma mater, is led by 6-11 C Carlos Rogers (24.8 ppg and 6.0 rpg). Duke G/F Grant Hill is dangerous on offense as well as defense, and F Antonio Lang (12.7 ppg) is underrated. Texas Southern, led by Theon Dotson (17.8 ppg), ended the season with a 13-game winning streak and won its fifth Southwestern Athletic Conference title. Michigan State is peaking at the right time, having won five of its past six. Shawn Respert (24.4 ppg) leads the Spartans. Seton Hall, a surprising ,, semifinalist in the Big East tournament, is led by F Arturas Karnishovas (17.5 ppg).
