umass minuteman

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.

By returning four starters off last year’s team that advanced to the NIT Final Four, the UMass Minutemen will be one of several teams competing for the Atlantic 10 title and trip to the Big Dance for the first time in 15 years.
