In This Corner

We have endured 415 games involving SEC basketball, and with each team playing their final game this Saturday, the SEC regular season will come to a close. Throughout the college basketball season, and more importantly throughout conference play we experienced what you come to expect from a college basketball season. From some teams surprising people, to great individual performances, to most importantly: the upsets.

Exceeding Expectations

It was not a pretty week for the Big 12 outside of Lawrence, Kansas and even the Jayhawks had their share of struggles. Two teams not themselves out of the NCAA Tournament as things currently stand (more on that later) while Baylor and West Virginia continued to slide, both dropping a game this week. Kansas did manage to clinch the Big 12 regular season outright this week, but they had to come back in a big way to beat the worst team in the conference, the Oklahoma Sooners. They clinched the title with a surprise team in second place, the Iowa State Cyclones.

Parting the SEC

It has been an interesting week for Kentucky Wildcat fans. Last weekend they saw their former Cats dominate All-Star weekend as Jamal Murray won the MVP of the Rising Stars Challenge, and Anthony Davis received MVP honors at the All-Star game in front of his home fans in New Orleans. Not only did Davis win MVP, break Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star scoring record, and earn a car in the process, he now gets to team up with Demarcus Cousins after Vlade Divac practically gave him up for free.

Getting Mased

We’re closing in on about two weeks left in the regular season and the battle for the Big 12 regular season championship is all but over. Kansas will almost assuredly take home the Big 12 regular season title, only needing one win to clinch a share and two to clinch it outright. Baylor, Iowa State, and West Virginia all sit three games back of the Jayhawks with only four to play. The rest of the Big 12 is still battling it out for position in the conference tournament, as well as for berths into the NCAA tournament.
