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.

New season, same old story in Conference USA as the Memphis Tigers are undoubtedly the team to beat.  It will be their final season in C-USA before heading to the Big East.

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.

With four straight twenty-plus win seasons, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane have re-established a program that saw a great stretch of success from the mid-nineties to early 2000’s.  However, a NCAA Tournament bid has still evaded the program for nearly a decade.  Another twenty wins could be on the horizon if Tulsa can find a way to replace Justin Hurtt.  Will that be enough to get them back into the Field of 68?
