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.

At the midway point of the 2002-03 MAC schedule, Bowling Green led the West Division with a 6-3 record, figuratively turning water into wine with five new starters.

By the time the Falcons met Central Michigan in a conference tournament quarterfinal, head coach Dan Dakich was down to six scholarship players. Injuries had devastated the roster, and BG's 3-9 season-ending crash was capped by an 87-70 loss to the Chippewas.
