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.


If Duquesne is ever to make a serious move in the A-10 West standings, then this might be the year, for a number of reasons.

Sure, George Washington looks loaded, but the A-10 West's two traditional powers, Xavier and Dayton, both suffered significant personnel losses. Richmond, also a 2004 NCAA Tournament team, lost some key people as well and La Salle is still reeling from last summer's rape scandal.
