Team preview: Charleston Southern
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Just when it looked like the Buccaneers' ship had come in, they walked the plank in seven of their last 10 games last year and now look to rebuild minus their top three scorers.
If the outlook sounds murky, don't tell veteran coach Jim Platt, who thinks the new mix at Charleston Southern could be better than last year's 14-14 squad. Those 14 victories represented the most at former Big South-power CSU since 1997, not coincidentally the Bucs' last league championship season.
