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.

Loyola endured its ninth straight losing season in 2002-03 and there really was no secret to the team's lack of success.

The Greyhounds averaged a league-worst 59 points per game, eight points less than ninth-ranked Rider. Loyola's defense wasn't horrible (72.0 ppg), but its inability to score resulted in an average scoring margin of minus 13 points.
