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.

Mark Turgeon’s first year as Maryland Terrapins head coach, post-Gary Williams era, was met with struggles as most expected.  Turgeon’s revamping of the roster means the Terps will once again be short-handed this season with only nine scholarship players eligible for the up-coming year.

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.

It is a new era for Maryland Terrapin basketball as Gary Williams announced his retirement after 22 successful years of running the program.  Mark Turgeon comes in from Texas A&M to take over for Williams but has his work cut out for him this season with only eight scholarship players on the roster.

Coming off their best season since winning the national title in 2002, Maryland has some serious holes to fill as their top three scorers from last season’s ACC co-champion are gone including the flamboyant Greivis Vasquez.  One thing is for sure though, Gary Williams will coach his guys up and have the Terps once again competing for a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
