Holy Cross Crusaders

2012-13: 12-18 (4-10 Patriot League)
In-conference offense: 1.00 points per possession (5th)
In-conference defense: 1.07 points allowed per possession (8th)

Holy Cross owned the Patriot League's weakest defense in 2012-13, struggling with below-average rebounding and a paltry defensive turnover rate. Milan Brown's team was at least closer to average on offense, but the scoring ability of Dave Dudzinski and Justin Burrell could only do so much, and the Crusaders won just four games in conference play.
