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.

Kermit Davis set the bar high in his first season coaching Middle Tennessee State.

Davis guided a team picked to finish fourth in its division and eighth overall in the 11-team Sun Belt Conference to a 9-5 league record and the conference tournament championship game last season.
