This may be a surprise to many, but SEC basketball has looked impressive through the first week of non-conference play. The conference combined for a record of 24-6. Even some of the losses have been impressive, such as Missouri who is projected to finish last in the SEC pushing No. 11 Xavier to OT just to lose by one. But, what is the excitement of college basketball without upsets? The Chattanooga Mocs went into Knoxville and beat Rick Barnes’ Volunteers by 13. Other than that hiccup, the SEC beat expectations through the first week on the hardwood.

For the most part, this was a standard weekend in Big 12 basketball, even though Texas did their best to make it interesting (more on that later) and Kansas started the season 0-1. A lot of new faces shined in new places, like Jamie Dixon at TCU, and a lot of young talent made their debuts, like Josh Jackson in Kansas. Teams have not played enough games to formulate a true opinion on them, and players have not logged enough minutes to know how good they really are. That’s part of what makes this part of the season so exciting.

The opening weekend of college basketball is in the books and I, for one, couldn't be happier. Basketball is back. And even though the NBA has been in full swing for a little over three weeks now, college basketball is just different. Aside from the obvious that the players aren't professionals, there's just a different level of excitement when watching your college team play as opposed to your NBA team. Every game matters more as a loss early in the season can affect whether a team gets into the NCAA Tournament come season's end.
