Bryant Bulldogs

2012-13: 19-12 (12-6 NEC)
In-conference offense: 1.17 points per possession (1st)
In-conference defense: 1.08 points per possession (8th)

After spending five years preparing for one season, where do Bryant and coach Tim O'Shea go next? The Bulldogs were finally eligible to compete for a berth in the NCAA tournament last season, and they made the most of it, improving by 17 wins overall. Now Bryant has to work on sustaining that success, which could be difficult after losing Frankie Dobbs, one of the biggest keys to the Bulldogs' up-tempo attack.
