Team preview: Winthrop
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Winthrop was 0.4 seconds away from a trip to a fifth consecutive Big South Conference Tournament final when UNC Asheville guard Alex Kragel's desperation jumper ended the Eagles' 2002-03 season.
After four consecutive league titles and subsequent trips to the NCAA Tournament, Winthrop went home early. And that experience may make the Eagles even more dangerous this year.
