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. Derek Waugh has a perfect explanation for why his Stetson Hatters finished third in the nation in team steals (10.8 spg), but ranked next to last in points allowed (81.0 ppg) last season.
"We either stole it, or they scored," said a half-joking Waugh, whose team is coming off a 6-20 season in which it failed to make the conference tournament. "This year, we've got to tighten up the defense."
