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.

If there is truly strength in numbers, watch out for Bucknell this season.

The Bison have a herd of seven seniors returning, plus six other players with game experience. They're playing in the sparkling new Sojka Pavilion, a showcase palace for small mid-major basketball, and the only drawback is that one of those returnees isn't Boakai Lalugba, who graduated after leading Bucknell in scoring (15.1 ppg) and the Patriot League in rebounding (9.5 rpg).
