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.

Appalachian State was nothing if not entertaining last season, one of the five upper-division Southern Conference teams and the highest-scoring bunch in the league.

For the second straight year the Mountaineers have lost a lot of firepower to graduation, and they will have to convince the rest of the league they are not rebuilding.
