With Midnight Madness just around the corner and another season ready to tip off, the Athlon Sports 2019-20 College Basketball Annual arrives in time to provide the preseason analysis and predictions craved by hoops fans from coast to coast and around the globe.
In this year’s magazine, we take an in-depth look at one of the most critical aspects of building a college basketball program: roster construction. What are the best strategies for building rosters that can sustain success in the one-and-done era? We also examine the pros and cons of playing for Pops in our feature "Daddy's Boy." And for those who love numbers, advanced stats guru Ken Pomeroy outlines the 12 distinct styles of play that have emerged in recent years, and the teams and coaches that adhere to each one.
In addition, you can also find exclusive Q&As with two of the game’s top talents — freshman sensation James Wiseman (Memphis) and Kansas superstar Devon Dotson. Athlon Sports also provides predictions for the upcoming season — with a complete projected NCAA Tournament bracket — as well as a story on the 10 Things to Watch in 2019-20.
This year’s edition includes All-America and All-Conference teams, our ranking of the top 100 players in the nation, 450-plus ranked high school recruits and previews of all 353 Division I teams.
