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 327 Division I teams.

The statistical data crowds around Trent Johnson like his players in the pre-game huddle.

When the Wolf Pack head coach took over in 1999, Nevada was coming off a seven-win season and 266 RPI rating. Four years and a couple of conferences later, Johnson exits the 2002-2003 season with 18 victories and an RPI rating of 106.
