Liz Condo-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

As we approach the tip-off of the 2012-2013 basketball season, I’ve compiled Tampa-Pack’s Preseason ACC Basketball Power Rankings.

Similar to football season, I plan to update the Power Rankings weekly once the season tips off, and look forward to your thoughts and input.

Remember "Primetime with the Pack" is coming up on Friday October 12th and things get rolling in November. Go PACK!
