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.
For the second straight year, the Washington Huskies underachieved a bit in the regular season even though they finished third in the Pac-10. Lorenzo Romar has to replace four starters but has some extremely talented youngsters who should help UW figure into the Pac-12 title race.
Last Season: 3rd, 11-7 in Pac-10, 22-14 overall
Predicted Pac-12 Finish: 2nd
