#79 Ole Miss Rebels: College Basketball 111 in 111

mississippi cheerleaders

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.

Mediocrity can only last so long for a college basketball coach.  Andy Kennedy is entering his seventh year as Ole Miss Rebels’ head coach and while he has led the team to five NIT appearances, a trip to the NCAA Tournament still escapes his resume.  This year will likely be a repeat performance.

#95 Ole Miss Rebels: College Basketball 111 in 111

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.

This year the SEC is getting rid of its old format of separating the conference’s basketball teams into two six-team divisions.  It makes a ton of sense since the East has been much stronger than the West the past several year.  Point in case: Ole Miss is already the third team from the former SEC West to make an appearance in my pre-season rankings and I am not even out of the mid-nineties.
