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.


It was a tough season for Shawn Finney and the Tulane Green Wave in 2003-04.

Finney hopes some tough lessons will pay off this year.

"We gained a wealth of experience," Finney said. "In college basketball, there's a lot of youth out there. Last year we were babies. Hopefully, this year we'll grow up a little bit. That's the plan anyway."
