NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Michigan State vs Purdue Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

SB Nation has released its massive college basketball season preview, which includes a list of college basketball’s top 100 players.

The mothership places two Michigan State Spartans on that list in the form of senior guard Eron Harris and freshman forward Miles Bridges.

Here’s the assessment of Harris, No. 60:

The only returning starter from last year's Big Ten Tournament championship team, Eron Harris showed glimpses last season of being a capable go-to scorer for Sparty on offense. He was at his best when eventual national Player of the Year Denzel Valentine was sidelined with a knee injury in December, averaging 16.8 points per game over a five-game span.

And for Bridges, No. 32:

The latest in a long line of players to make the transition from Flint to East Lansing, Miles Bridges might be the most talented freshman that Tom Izzo has ever had the privilege of coaching. With 2016 AP National Player of the Year Denzel Valentine now wearing a Chicago Bulls jersey, Bridges' timing couldn't have been better.

The Spartans take on the Arizona Wildcats tonight at 7 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.
