Team preview: Fresno State

It should have been a season of pure joy at Fresno State:
First-time coach leads program to a first-place finish in the WAC and the NCAA Tournament berth that goes with it. Succeeding a controversial legend who once won a national championship, the confident rookie steps in like Fred Astaire greeting Ginger Rogers. A 20-win campaign ensues with a promising postseason waiting in the wings.
