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.

So far, Memphis coach John Calipari has done what he was hired to do in March of 2000.

In his first year, Calipari led the Tigers to a 21-15 season and NIT semifinal berth after they had posted back-to-back losing seasons.
