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.

First-year USF coach Robert McCullum won't sway from the beliefs he learned during 18 years as an assistant and three as a head coach.

McCullum stresses defense. Last spring, he took his defensive philosophy from Western Michigan to his new job at USF. He succeeded Seth Greenberg, who was hired by Virginia Tech last spring.
