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 326 Division I teams.


Long Beach State will have a new look this season, with four new starters and six newcomers third-year coach Larry Reynolds expects to play significant roles. Typically four new starters would make for a difficult year, but it's hard to imagine things could get much worse for the 49ers.
