The Major-Conference Preview also includes John Perrotto's overview of what to expect from the mid-majors this season, as well as an entire section devoted to the following "thoughts for a new season":
"Books this comprehensive and informative are not supposed to be nearly this entertaining. Every page has something you didn't know, and are now glad you do."
"The College Basketball Prospectus was a revelation when it debuted in 2008-09. I watch so many hours of basketball that I tend to regard preview publications as refresher courses, but CBP is the rare book that gives you valuable new insight into teams and players. The analysis from John Gasaway and Ken Pomeroy isn't just original. They're working with information no one else has, because they've personally (and painstakingly) compiled it over the past six seasons. Tempo-free stats are making their way into the college hoops mainstream, and the College Basketball Prospectus is at the forefront of the movement."
"As a basketball junkie, I can't imagine going into a new season without the College Basketball Prospectus. Ken Pomeroy and John Gasaway take you inside the numbers and get you to look at college basketball in a unique and informative way. For me the book is a must-read."
