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.

Tulane coach Shawn Finney, who was born in the small town of Mullens, W.Va., had a chance to go home during the off-season.

Marshall called on Finney to replace the departed Greg White as coach. As a youngster, Finney considered that his dream job. Now, for the 40-year-old Finney, it was his job to take or turn down.
