Stepping Up

The Big 12 saw some dominance from a few unexpected teams this week. Kansas continued to round into their usual form, defeating Long Beach State and Stanford comfortably. Baylor kept on rolling, dominating Sam Houston State and then controlling the 7th ranked team in the country, Xavier. Even with the Bears’ emergence as a Big 12 title contender, the most surprising team in the conference continues to be the Jamie Dixon-led TCU Horned Frogs, who are undefeated through seven games.

Crazy Like a Fox

The college basketball season is still young, but the separation between who is going to contend in the conference and who is still in rebuilding mode is evident. We all knew coming into the season the depth of the SEC was not going to be impressive and they would be lucky to send 4 or 5 teams to the dance. That is still the case, but beyond Kentucky the feeling was as if the other teams that were going to come out of the SEC were going to be on the bubble.

One Man Wolfpack

Thanksgiving is over and the season is now in full swing. Most of the "Holiday Tournaments" are behind us and teams are now looking at closing out their OOC schedules as we head into December before Conference play gets under way with the new year. Thus far, the ACC looks like the best conference in America top to bottom with some of the usual suspects leading the way. With a solid showing in this week's ACC/Big 10 Challenge, I could easily see the conference getting 9-10 teams into the NCAA Tournament field when it is all said and done.

Another week of college basketball is in the books, and the Big 12 had some great games from some unexpected teams, and some terrible games by teams that were supposed to be at the top of the conference. Oklahoma struggled with Abilene Christian, while Iowa State could not pull away from Indiana State and dropped a game to a talented Gonzaga Bulldogs squad. The Texas Longhorns continued their shaky non-conference start with a loss to Colorado in their only game of the week.
