Power Conference Ranking
For SEC fans, the 2009 NBA Draft was about as exciting as watching paint dry.
The buzz around the SEC this year was how much stronger the conference would be, top-to-bottom, with so many key players returning and new faces ready to make an instant impact. A year after getting only three teams into the NCAA Tournament, this was supposed to be a rebound year, with as many as six or seven teams competing for berths in the Big Dance.
Quality wins: North Carolina, Connecticut, Indiana
Postseason prediction: NCAA Final Four
A new era of Kentucky basketball begins, but will the likes of Mississppi St, Tennesse, or Vanderbilt spoil John Calipari's entrance. Perhaps no league is loaded with NBA talent like the SEC.
