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 326 Division I teams.

COACH AND PROGRAM

Looking for a team that can loosen Xavier and Dayton's stranglehold on the A-10 West? George Washington looks like that team.

Picked to finish near the bottom of the A-10 West standings last winter, coach Karl Hobbs' freshman and sophomore-laden squad finished one game out of first place (behind Dayton), won 18 games and went to the NIT, the school's first postseason berth since 1999.
