   The Skinny: The AAC regular-season and tournament champion has a 16-game winning streak and has already set a school record with 30 wins. Tim Jankovich is in his first season as coach after Larry Brown's departure. The Mustangs missed last year's NCAA Tournament with 25 wins because of NCAA sanctions that still have them with a short-handed roster.
