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. Kirk Speraw doesn't get enough credit for the job he has done at UCF, a school that had never had a winning season at the NCAA Division I level before his arrival.
In 10 years, Speraw has posted eight double-figure win totals and helped put the Golden Knights on the national map. He has led his teams to a pair of trips to the NCAA Tournament and five conference tournament finals on national television.
