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.


Only two players return who averaged more than four points a game last season. Of the 15 players on the team, six are unproven sophomores and seven are freshmen.

And you know what, come March, few would be surprised if Brown was pushing Princeton for the Ivy League title.

Coach Glen Miller has succeeded in his quest to establish the Bears as an every-year competitor in the Ivy League, having finished second or third three straight seasons. With 10 Ivy wins this winter, it would become the first league team, besides Princeton and Penn, to win 40 games in a four-year stretch since Columbia from 1968-71.
