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.

Fran McCaffery is very close to helping the Iowa Hawkeyes turn the corner and become a NCAA Tournament caliber team.  The addition of a pair of key freshmen has the Hawkeyes’ future looking rather bright.

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.

Not that long ago, the Iowa Hawkeyes were a consistently competitive Big Ten foe only missing out on the NCAA Tournament twice between 1991-2006.  The past four years, the Hawkeyes have been consistent in a different way; consistently pathetic finishing no higher than eighth in the conference.  That is unlikely to change this season.
