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.


When Robbie Laing introduced a full-throttle, full-court tempo to the Campbell Camels before the 2003-04 season, his first as a head coach, the players didn't realize a threshing floor was about to replace the basketball court.

"I thought everyone was excited, especially the players," Laing said. "It sounds fun to them, but they don't understand the level of commitment to actually play that brand of basketball."
