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.

One season after a 12-win improvement that resulted in a 19-12 record and the school's first-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament, Florida Atlantic reverted to its old ways.

The Owls finished 7-21 overall last year, and just 3-13 in Atlantic Sun play. Their sixth-place finish in the South Division didn't even qualify them for the conference tournament and a chance to defend their crown.
