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.


A losing season is a rare occurrence at Illinois State. Two in a row is just not normal in Normal.

Last year the Redbirds accomplished the dubious distinction of two straight losing seasons after posting a 10-19 campaign under new head coach Porter Moser, marking only the fifth time in the last 33 years ISU has failed to field a winner.
