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.


Much has changed since the Spiders finished up a successful 2003-04 campaign with a double-digit loss to Wisconsin in the first round of the 2004 Big Dance.

First, that loss to Bo Ryan's club represented the end of the line for three 1,000-point scorers – Mike Skrocki (16.0 ppg), Tony Dobbins (11.1 ppg) and Reggie Brown (7.5 ppg), as well as inside banger Eric Zwayer (3.3 ppg, 3.1 rpg). Those players represented 54.7 percent of the team's points and 54.3 percent of its assists a year ago.
