Eastern Kentucky Colonels

2012-13: 25-10 (12-4)
In-conference offense: 1.15 points per possession (2nd)
In-conference defense: 1.02 points per possession (3rd)

A few months removed from a surprise second-place finish in the Ohio Valley Conference, Eastern Kentucky enters 2013-14 as the team to beat. Belmont, Murray State and Tennessee State lose significant, all-conference players, while the Colonels return nearly every major contributor from a 25-win team.
