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.

Coming off a six-win 2001-2002 season, the last thing Indiana State needed a year ago was a slow start.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened to Royce Waltman's crew. The Sycamores won two of their first three games before embarking on a three-game losing skid. Things never improved from there as ISU went on 10-game and six-game losing streaks on the way to posting its second straight season of single digit wins.
