Welcome to The Sports Bank’s second annual college basketball season preview series.  Last year we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  This year, we are being slightly more aggressive and expanding to 111 teams in 111 days.  We will rank the 74 power conference teams and top 37 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

Underestimating Bo Ryan’s ability to coach up his guys is like saying Minka Kelly is ugly; it’s just downright idiotic.  Regardless of who is gone or who is returning, Ryan always has the Wisconsin Badgers competing for a Big Ten title and a threat to make the Sweet 16.  This year will be no different as UW boasts the best point guard in the country; Jordan Taylor.  (Yeah, I said it.)

Lesson #1: never, ever under-estimate how good of a coach Bo Ryan is.  Regardless of how many players the Wisconsin Badgers lose in any given season, Ryan always has UW near the top of the Big Ten standings.  Expect more of the same this year.

The Sports Bank’s “99 in 99” ranks the 72 power conference college basketball programs and top 27 mid-majors.  Click here if you missed teams #19-#99.
