Team preview: Lamar
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Billy Ball returned to Lamar last season, at least in some ways.
With legendary coach and Lamar alum Billy Tubbs back pacing the sideline, the Cardinals led the Southland Conference in team scoring (79.1 ppg) after jacking up a league-high 1,945 field-goal attempts and also paced the conference in blocked shots (128) and steals (269).
