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.


Bruins' head coach Rick Byrd espouses a four-out, one-in offensive scheme. Four dangerous shooters ring the perimeter, while a solitary post presence scuffles in the paint.

Now, the one who was in is out, and what a big one he was. Adam Mark was more than the A-Sun's leading scorer (18.6 ppg) and the 13th-most accurate field-goal shooter in NCAA history (64.4 percent). He was a two-time A-Sun Student Athlete of the Year after booking a 3.96 GPA in computer science and mathematics.
