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.

The best team in the MEAC in the last half of last season might have been Howard.

Howard was supposed to be one of the top teams in the MEAC last year, but injuries got the Bison off to a 2-14 start. Howard fans must have thought they were returning to the bad old days of previous years when the program won just three games in a two-year span (3-53 in 1998 and '99).
