Either by choice or necessity, some college basketball teams pin their hopes on a distinctive style or a single player.
If it lacks the versatility or willingness to adapt to various situations or opponents, a team is labeled as one-dimensional.
Sometimes that tag provides an identity the coach and players can embrace. Sometimes it limits what a team can do, especially in the postseason.
One-dimensional teams either excel only in one aspect of the game or live and die with the performance of their lone star.
In ranking the most one-dimensional teams, we considered only teams that have a chance to play in the NCAA tournament. None of those teams is strictly one-dimensional, but these 10 have limited adaptability.
