Welcome to The Sports Bank’s fourth annual college basketball season preview series where we break 111 teams in the 111 days leading up to the opening tip-off of the 2013-2014 season. We will rank the 84 power conference teams (including the new Big East and American Athletic Conferences) and top 27 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.
Earning the dubious honor of finishing dead last in my rankings are the Auburn Tigers. In his fourth season as head coach, Tony Barbee simply hasn’t found a recipe to work as players have either transferred, been dismissed, or not panned out as expected. There is plenty of turnover on the roster again as only four players who saw significant minutes return from a year ago.
Last season: 14th, 3-15 in SEC, 9-23 overall
Projected SEC Finish: 14th
