2011-2012 College Basketball Preview

Well, this is a bit weird.

Sure the 2011-2012 college basketball season is on the horizon, but there is no NBA.  Normally I would follow up a college basketball preview with an NBA preview, but the college boys will have to fly solo for now.

At any rate, here is how I see things shaking out among the major conferences, starting with the greatest basketball conference in all the land: the Atlantic Coast Conference.

    Hopefully the level of play out west improves this year because the Pac-12 talent has been terrible the last couple of years. Arizona’s ability to recruit should give them the edge though, I agree with you there.

      Yeah, the Pac-12 should be fun to watch this season. This may be one of the more unpredictable and interesting seasons in college basketball…
