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.
Entering his third year with the Maryland Terrapins, Mark Turgeon has yet to turn the program back towards the success it grew accustomed to under Gary Williams. The Terps have quality talent on the roster this year but a lack of depth is a major concern as they enter their swan song as members of the ACC.
Last Season: 8th, 8-10 in ACC, 25-13 overall
Predicted ACC Finish: 7th
