byu cheerleaders

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.

As expected, the BYU Cougars’ transition to the West Coast Conference was smooth as they advanced to the NCAA Tournament for a sixth straight season.  Steady goes the course for Dave Rose as he should have BYU competing for another trip to the dance.
