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.

As if another losing season wasn’t enough for the Auburn Tigers to deal with, the basketball program had one of their players, Varez Ward, investigated by the FBI for a point shaving allegation.  On top of that, Tony Barbee had to dismiss two other players and lost two more to transfer.

Remember when the Texas Longhorns were 17-0 and the top ranked team in the country last season?  I will admit it; I was buying into the hype.  They looked like they were going to be a gimme to get to the Final Four with their well-rounded roster.  Instead, the Horns ended up losing eight of their final fourteens regular season games and were a one-and-done in the tourney.

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 #25-#99.
