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.

Rider coach Don Harnum knows what people think when they look at his roster.

First, they see standout guard Jerry Johnson, one of the most dynamic players in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Next, they see three other starters and six of the Broncs' top seven scorers from last season returning. Then, they draw the conclusion that Rider will be making a big jump in the standings this year.
