This is why we love conference play. The madness that occurs week-in and week-out is what makes college basketball so exciting to watch. The No. 1 team suffered their second loss on the year after barely survivng a few nights earlier, North Carolina got a ranked win and got blown out in the same week, and seemingly everybody lost in what is one of the best weeks of basketball to date.

NBA Sophomore Watch

The 2017 NBA Draft class received a lot of criticism during last season, as many thought it was a weak, shallow class. Fast forward a year later, and it looks like the 2017 NBA Draft class may end up producing a number of future all-stars, along with 2016 #1 pick Ben Simmons, who is a lock to make the All Star Game this season unless he gets injured. Aside from the five best players in this class, there are several other solid players, making it a deep draft class as well. Let’s take a look at my top-10 NBA sophomores.

There were top ten matchups, big time upsets, and more than enough close games to satisfy the college basketball fans of the world this week.

In what was, to be blunt, a boring week in college basketball, not much really happened. Monday through Thursday consisted of zero ranked teams in action and it wasn’t until Friday that we saw some big-name schools back on the hardwood. However, fans won’t be disappointed for long as conference play tips-off midway through next week.

Why a Murray State Sophomore Point Guard Should Get Consideration For the Number 1 Pick

Sun, 12/30/2018 - 12:50pm

The NBA is often described as a "make or miss" league, and that phrase can also be applied to the NBA draft. NBA front office positions seem to be in a constant state of flux, with a great deal of turnover among struggling teams. Making picks at the top of drafts devoid of a clear franchise talent can be a frustrating proposition. This year's draft is shaping up to be another arduous drill.

European Stock Watch

There is no Luka Doncic in the 2019 international draft class. Considering the fact Doncic is the best European prospect of the last 20 years (and possibly more) that is to be expected. That said, this year's class might be lacking a true franchise talent, but probably possesses more depth than last year's class.

The second season for NBA players is a crucial one, as players usually go in a couple of different directions. You usually either see continued development, or a sophomore slump. With Ben Simmons counted as a sophomore due to his rookie year injury, this class may have more than a few future all-stars. The top-5 players on this list were incredibly hard to differentiate, as each are having very solid sophomore seasons. Without further ado, here are the top-ten sophomores in the NBA, based on the season they are having this year.
