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.

This season Binghamton is playing for real.

The Bearcats, who enjoyed surprising success during their first two seasons while making the jump from Division II to the America East, have made it through the NCAA's transition phase, which makes them eligible for the conference's postseason tournament and an NCAA Tournament berth for the first time.
