The Syracuse basketball team is full of polarizing players.

Incoming freshmen Kaleb Joseph and Chris McCullough both project to be starters, and all eyes will be on their transition to the college game. McCullough in particular is flush with upside, and he could end up in next year's NBA draft.

Then you have Trevor Cooney, the team's resident sharpshooter, who will be looking to bounce back from a difficult second half of the 2013-14 season. There's also Rakeem Christmas, whom head coach Jim Boeheim believes could be the ACC's most improved player.

Factor in DaJuan Coleman's health and what improvements Tyler Roberson will make, and there's plenty to discuss ahead of next season.

But one Orange player who seems to fly under the radar is junior Michael Gbinije. Gbinije found it difficult to get much run last year behind Cooney, C.J. Fair, Jerami Grant and Tyler Ennis. Now Gbinije is one of the team's veterans, and he should have a much larger role in the upcoming season.

Here are five reasons Gbinije will overachieve in 2014-15.
