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.

There's reason for excitement in Kansas City this year and not just because of the presence of scoring machine guard Michael Watson.

For the first time in his career, the 6-1 senior guard (25.5 ppg, 3.8 apg) will be surrounded with an equally talented group ready to carry its share of the load.
