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.

After two sub-par seasons, Southern Miss coach James Green liked his team's chances of bouncing back this year when school started in September.

Green's optimism was clouded in early September by an NCAA investigation which resulted in the ineligibility of two recruits and the resignation of assistant coach Luster Goodwin.
