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.


Two straight seasons of reaching the conference championship would make the fans of most programs happy. Not so at Chattanooga. That's what coach John Shulman is facing in his first year at the tradition-rich program.
