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.

Coming off a momentum turning 2001-02 season, Loyola wanted to keep moving forward. Unfortunately, that didn't quite happen, but at least the Ramblers didn't retreat in 2002-03.

At 15-16, Loyola fell two wins shy of matching its record from the previous season. More important, the Ramblers held their ground at 9-7 in the Horizon League and coach Larry Farmer sees considerable merit in that.
