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.

Sammy West has served as Davey Whitney's right hand man for the last seven seasons at Alcorn State. Now he gets a chance to put to use what he's learned.

West was promoted from assistant to head coach in April, succeeding the legendary Whitney, who retired at the conclusion of last season.
