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.
Another season, another year in which Bo Ryan will have his Wisconsin Badgers in the thick of the Big Ten race. Unlike last season when UW relied on their experienced frontcourt, the strength of this season’s team comes with their talented guards.
Last Season: T-4th, 12-6 in Big 10, 23-12 overall
Predicted Big Ten Finish: 4th
