temple dance team

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 Temple Owls have been the model of consistency, winning twenty-plus games in each of the past five seasons.  The Atlantic 10 is arguably as loaded as it has ever been meaning Fran Dunphy’s team has their work cut out for them this season before heading to the Big East.
