A Christmas Carroll

Another week of college basketball is behind us, as we inch closer to conference play in the Big 12. It was another relatively slow week in college basketball as almost all schools are now on winter break. There were a few good games this week, but most teams are at the softest portion of their schedule. Dominant performances were hard to come by, as many top players saw shortened minutes because of blowouts. For that reason, we will be going a little under the radar for our player of the week.

So Close

Over the past week, college basketball seemed as if it was at a standstill because of finals so there has been a lack of quality games and games in general. Most power five teams were matched up with cupcakes before they ran into the brunt of their non-conference schedule or were resting up before conference play began. Well, North Carolina scheduled Tennessee who has not been as competitive as they have been in the past couple years and that they would cruise to an easy “W” in Chapel Hill.

Gunnin' for that #1 Spot

We’re heading to the home stretch of non-conference play in college basketball, which means breaks for finals and the holidays. Unfortunately, that also means fewer games to watch and a limited slate of Big 12 games to talk about. With that said, some teams did a nice job of reinforcing their positions in the conference, while others continued to plummet. Two teams did their best to prove my preseason predictions wrong, and only one did so in a positive way.
