byu cheerleaders

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.

Jimmer Time was a fun ride for all of college basketball last season.  2011-2012 will be a year of transition though for the BYU Cougars as they must replace their All-American guard and also make the switch from the Mountain West to the West Coast Conference.

You knew it wouldn’t be long until this happened. Pics of the woman who…well if Helen of Troy had the face that launched a 1,000 ships, then Brandon Davies’ girlfriend has the beauty that possibly cost a mid-major college basketball program a trip to the Final Four.

As we all know, BYU- the #3 team in the country has dismissed starting forward Brandon Davies, the team’s leading rebounder, for the rest of the season. His infraction is a violation of the school’s honor code.

Word is the violation is impregnating his girlfriend. Rumors on Twitter state she’s pregnant, but it’s been confirmed that having sex was the “offense.” Pregnancy has not been confirmed as of yet.

So who is she? A volleyball player for Arizona State actually.
