Here are the half-dozen teams worth keeping an eye on in our first look at college basketball in 2012-2013 season.
Though we are about at the mid-way point of the college basketball season it’ still very early in the conference season for most teams, so the numbers below will change vastly in the next several weeks.
With that said, Florida is currently the team that meets all criteria of a national champ. The others have flaws, but of course are not excluded at this point.
One would not expect Minnesota’s SoS to remain in the 200s, for example – and that’s what is keeping the Gophers from full contender status.
The other four have offensive efficiency issues which most likely won’t become readily apparent until later in the season and/or later in the NCAA tourney, when defensive minded teams tend to dominate.
