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.


Coach Ralph Willard rattles off numbers about his Holy Cross basketball team like some roundball Rainman.

The Crusaders were seventh in the nation in scoring defense (58.6 ppg allowed), 7th in steals (10.7 per game) but 279th in offense (63.1) and a horrid 322nd in free-throw percentage (.592).
