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.

If Liberty was a surprising team in the Big South last year, be prepared for a shock this season.

The Flames finished second in the league under new coach Randy Dunton and they've got four starters back and a recruiting class that is the answer to Flames fans' prayers. Don't be surprised if some of the stalwarts who forged last year's turnaround are on the bench watching the new guys before this season's done.
