Editor's Note: Insider has teamed with Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, long known as the Bible of college basketball, to provide a comprehensive look at all 327 Division I teams.

COACH AND PROGRAM
Stanford surprised many people last season by winning 24 games, but since last season they have lost 24-the guy who wore No. 24 that is.

Point guard Julius Barnes, the biggest reason for Stanford's success last season, has graduated, leaving Cardinal coach Mike Montgomery with a huge set of sneakers to fill.
