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.
Even though last season was a year of transition, the California Golden Bears still finished with the fourth best record in the Pac-10. With almost everybody back from a year ago, Cal should make some noise out west.
CALIFORNIA GOLDEN BEARS
Last Season: T-4th, 10-8 in Pac-10, 18-15 overall
