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.

For the second straight year, Billy Gillespie has massive turnover on the Texas Tech Red Raiders roster.  Six players are transferring out of the program while a whopping eight new recruits arrived on campus.  Translation; it should be another long, painful basketball season in Lubbock, Texas.
