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 just his second season as Oklahoma Sooners head coach, Lon Kruger led the team back to the NCAA Tournament last year.* With several key players graduating though, expect OU to take a step back in the Big 12 this season.
