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.
In search of their fourth straight Big West Conference title, the Long Beach State 49ers have a lot of turnover on their roster due to the transfer of several key players from a year ago. Still, LBSU will be the team to beat in the Big West.
LONG BEACH STATE 49ERS
