One for the Ages

It’s about time to separate the teams who are going to get a shot in March from the teams who are going to be sitting right outside the bubble, only to play in the NIT.

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.
