Team preview: Winthrop
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
After five years of soaring in the Big South Conference, last year, the Eagles were just plain sore.
Injuries derailed the four-time league champions, the top seven players in coach Gregg Marshall's rotation missing 57 games to various aches and pains. Marshall was down to his fourth point guard late in the year and it was more than Winthrop could overcome en route to a disappointing 16-12 record and third-place finish.
