Three members of the All-Big Ten first team entered the NBA draft.

Nik Stauskas went No. 8 to the Kings.

Gary Harris went No. 19 to the Nuggets (via the Bulls).

And Devyn Marble went No. 56 to the Magic.

Stauskas and Harris were better than Marble in college, but the difference wasn’t that great.

Their draft stocks varied so much because Stauskas (Michigan) and Harris (Michigan State) each spent just two years in college, leaving them with higher perceived upsides. Marble, on the other hand, played four years at Iowa, creating the impression too much of his success was due to just being older than the opposition.
