#96 LSU Tigers: College Basketball 111 in 111

lsu

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.

Trent Johnson’s brief tenure as LSU Tigers head coach came to an end this off-season as he left for TCU.  LSU replaced Johnson with North Texas head coach and former Tiger Johnny Jones who takes over a roster with plenty of turnover.

The University of Texas-Pan American Broncs (that’s Broncs not Broncos, not a typo- even though it really looks like one) didn’t do too well in their Chi-City college basketball double-header. DePaul got a big lead on them early; although UTPA fought back to within 5 in the second half. And the Blue Demons pulled away late to win 91-72.

When the Broncs came to Evanston to play Northwestern, they got almost doubled up; losing 60-36.

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.

For the second straight season, the LSU Tigers finished dead last in the SEC .  That streak figures to end in 2011-2012, but it certainly will not come easy for Trent Johnson and company.

99 in 99: #90 LSU Tigers

LSU cheerleaders

In doing my 99 team college basketball previews in 99 days, I got to thinking (which is always a dangerous thing)… I bet I will be able to name 1,000 college hoops players before the season starts.  Anyone want to challenge me?

The Sports Bank’s “99 in 99” countdown ranks the 72 power conference teams and top 27 mid-majors in reverse power rankings order, and will lead right up to the start of the season.  LSU comes in at #91 and appears to be in for another season of struggles.  Click here if you missed teams #91-#99.
