If you are unfamiliar with College Hoops 101, it is a weekly feature here at The Sports Bank that breaks down everything you need to know going on in the world of college basketball.  Every Monday I will look back at the previous week’s action, break down what to expect in the week ahead, and most importantly, update you on the obscene amount of games I have watched.

It’s Feast Week!  Shove your face with some turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing… send your girlfriends/wives out shopping… sit back and enjoy some college basketball preseason tournaments.  None more stacked than the Maui Invitational.

99 in 99: #13 Baylor Bears

LaceDarius Dunn arrested

The Baylor Bears quickly climbed up the rankings last season and was a sexy pick to make some serious noise heading into the NCAA Tournament.  Losing three starters, possibly four depending on LaceDarius Dunn’s status will hurt, but Scott Drew has one of the top freshmen in the country who should help the Bears still be a major factor in the Big 12.

The Sports Bank’s “99 in 99” ranks the 72 power conference college basketball teams and top 27 mid-majors for the 2010-2011 season.  Click here if you missed teams #14-#99.
