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.

On paper, American lost The Backcourt and should be rebuilding.

Gone are first-team All-Patriot guard Steve Miles and second-team choice Glen Stokes, but in reality, the Eagles may be better this season.
