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.

Last April, when Mike Garland was hired as head coach at Cleveland State, it made something of a prophet out of his mentor, Tom Izzo.

Three years earlier, in March of 2000, Garland was Izzo's assistant when Michigan State began its run to the NCAA title at Goodman Arena in the Cleveland State Convocation Center.
