It’s officially conference preview season! We’re counting down the final 10 weeks until the college basketball season kicks off, and so that means it’s time to start previewing conferences for the 2022-23 season.
We start with the ACC, a league that was much-maligned for most of last season but wound up producing three Elite Eight and two Final Four teams. Now, with Duke in the post-Coach K era and UNC running it back, what’s the outlook look like at the top and for the rest of the league? Can Virginia or Florida State return to the top? And is there hope for teams near the bottom like NC State and Georgia Tech with coaches on the hot seat?
