Welcome to The Sports Bank’s third annual college basketball season preview series.  Two years we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  Last year, we were slightly more aggressive and expanded to 111 teams in 111 days and will do so again as we look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

We will rank the 75 power conference teams and top 36 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

The Arizona State Sun Devils have fallen on hard times in recent years.  They are a combined 10-30 in Pac-12 play the past two seasons.  Herb Sendek once again lost several players to transfer during the off-season but does get Jahii Carson eligible.

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s second annual college basketball season preview series.  Last year we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  This year, we are being slightly more aggressive and expanding to 111 teams in 111 days.  We will rank the 74 power conference teams and top 37 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

2010-2011 was a rough season for the Arizona State Sun Devils but not as terrible as Herb Sendek’s first year at ASU when the team won just two Pac-10 games.  This season should not be as miserable for the Sun Devils but they still figure to struggle even with the addition of highly-touted freshman Jahii Carson.

The Pac-10 was so weak last season that Arizona State finished second in conference play but failed to the make the NCAA Tournament.  That finish was surprising for the Sun Devils who were expected to struggle after the losses of James Harden and Jeff Pendergraph to the NBA.  Can Herb Sendek once again turn ASU into a conference contender?
