Yale Bulldogs

2012-13: 14-17 (8-6 Ivy)
In-conference offense: 1.06 points per possession (3rd)
In-conference defense: 1.03 points allowed per possession (6th)

Yale exceeded expectations to finish third in the Ivy League last season, but perhaps that should not have been such a big surprise. Under the guidance of head coach James Jones, the Bulldogs have finished in the top half of the league every season for the past decade. Given that Yale's two most promising players were freshmen a season ago, the experienced Ivy League-watcher would be foolish to bet against another strong campaign from Jones.
