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.
Fran McCaffery is very close to helping the Iowa Hawkeyes turn the corner and become a NCAA Tournament caliber team. The addition of a pair of key freshmen has the Hawkeyes’ future looking rather bright.
Last Season: T-7th, 8-10 in Big Ten, 18-17 overall
Predicted Big Ten Finish: 8th
