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.

Conference USA is pretty wide open this season in terms of who will finish in second place behind the Memphis Tigers.  Of the candidates, the Marshall Thundering Herd enter the season with the most talent.

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.

If you have not been keeping track at home, A- shame on you, B- you will notice that the Marshall Thundering Herd are the first mid-major in my rankings which means I project them to be the 37th mid-major in the country.  They have the potential to be a major sleeper in Conference USA.
