Baylor 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.

The past few years, the Baylor Bears have relied on their lengthy, athletic frontcourt.  Scott Drew loses his entire starting frontcourt including three of their top four scorers meaning the guard play will be relied on to lead the way this season.
