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.
The Missouri Tigers program has been all over the radar this off-season; due to conference realignment rumors, new head coach Frank Haith’s possible connection to the scandal at Miami, and most recently, a season-ending injury to senior Laurence Bowers. The latter of those dropped Mizzou several spots in my rankings and means the Tigers enter the season with only eight eligible scholarship players.
Last Season: T-5th, 8-8 in Big 12, 23-11 overall
Predicted Big 12 Finish: 4th
