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.


Everything was in place for a memorable season at Wichita State.

The Shockers had their most talented team in head coach Mark Turgeon's four-year tenure and they were reopening Charles Koch Arena after an extensive remodeling job. WSU entered the season with visions of a trip to the MVC championship game and the NCAA Tournament, but sometimes things don't always go according to plan.
