Team preview: Quinnipiac
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Some coaches just love being the underdog. You can count Joe DeSantis among them.
Three years ago, DeSantis' Quinnipiac squad was picked to finish 10th in the NEC and it ended up in the conference championship game.
Last year, everyone dubbed the Bobcats the team to beat in the preseason, and they ended up 10th in the league and home for the postseason tournament.
This season, Quinnipiac figures to be a middle of the road team and that suits its head coach just fine.
