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.


One step at a time, Travis Ford is rebuilding the program at Eastern Kentucky. The Colonels took another step last season, climbing to a fourth-place finish in the Ohio Valley Conference regular season and advancing to the semifinals of the league tournament.
