Hello everyone, this is Michael Visenberg and I would like to welcome you to what I hope will be the first of many NCAA Daily posts! The goal of this new feature is to help keep you up to date on the latest news stories and issues concerning the teams, coaches, and players of college basketball. With the college season starting, we have a lot of solid items to pick from. If you would like to see something examined, please comment and we will do the best we can. Thank you for reading and for your support, here is the very first NCAA Daily:
Frank Burlison checks in with the first Power 16 of the season.
The 2010-2011 season was filled with mid-major schools gaining national notoriety for performances in the 2011 NCAA Tournament and individual player performances throughout the season. Butler (8 seed) and Virginia Commonwealth (11 seed) stunned the country by advancing to the Final Four to face-off against each other for a chance to play in the National Championship Game against Connecticut (3 seed). Butler beat VCU, 70-62, and advanced to the title game, losing to Connecticut, 53-41, in one of the sloppiest National Championship games in recent memory.
With all of the conference realignment swirling around the Big 12 for the better part of the past year, it's finally time to start the 2011 college basketball season. With Nebraska now playing in the Big Ten, and Colorado now spending its away games along the West Coast, the conference is now down to 10 teams, with each one playing a brutal 18 game round-robin schedule. This will give the Big 12 a true champion, along with putting it's best teams through a gauntlet that should make them primed for NCAA Tournament action.
Terrence Ross, 6’7 SG, Washington
As a prospect, Ross has excellent range along with NBA size and athleticism. Though not necessarily a go-to weapon, he will have a chance to become that in his sophomore season. His ability to connect from downtown and slash off the ball make him the perfect candidate to play the two at the next level.
