The Big Ten is losing some serious four-year talent.

The list of names is nothing short of impressive, and it is, no doubt, headlined by Big Ten Player of the Year Denzel Valentine.

Other top names who have exhausted their eligibility: Yogi Ferrell, A.J. Hammons, Caris LeVert and Jarrod Uthoff.

Talk about a scary starting 5.

You can create a strong bench, too, with the likes of Rapheal Davis, Jake Layman and Shavon Shields, among others.

With all of the talent headed out the door, Lisa Byington asked me to play word association Tuesday night on "BTN Live." Thing is, I didn't really pay attention to the rules, going with more of a hashtag than one word.

Watch it all in the video above.
