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 Paladins lost their top scorer, their top rebounder, and their top playmaker from last season. Nine of the 13 players on the roster have played one season or less at Furman. No wonder head coach Larry Davis calls this year "a mystery."

He adds a positive disclaimer, though-"I think we've got the most talent top to bottom, the most basketball savvy, the deepest team, since I've been here."
