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.

When Seton Hall started last season 15-2, NCAA Tournament thoughts were dancing through their heads.  The Pirates couldn’t finish the season as they started though and missed out on the tourney.  This year, Kevin Willard faces the tall task of replacing seniors Jordan Theodore and Herb Pope who were the leaders both on and off the court last season.
