It was an exciting week in the Big 12 with games in full swing and marquee matchups across the board. Kansas rebounded from their tough loss to Indiana with a nice victory over Duke in the Champions Classic. Baylor made their statement to be the top contender with a lopsided victory over the Oregon Ducks, who were ranked 4th at the time. Guard play looks to be a theme in the conference this year, with players lighting up the scoreboards from backcourts around the conference (we’ll get to some of that shortly).
After going 18-1 in the opening weekend of hoops, the ACC came back to Earth a little this week. The league finished 28-7 with a few key victories and a few losses that potential contenders would love to have back. There were great performances all around the league and quite a few from players you haven't heard of...yet. Clemson is the only team with multiple losses on the season and just haven't looked the same since their opening night win against Georgia.
