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.

Replacing two of last season's top three scorers will be challenging for Long Beach State coach Larry Reynolds, but he will likely get some help from returnees Kevin Roberts and Jibril Hodges.

The 49ers,coming off a tough season during which they finished last in the league and lost all their away games, should better their marks from last season. But it won't be easy.
