We are at the halfway point of the college basketball season, with conference play well underway.

Here is a list of some teams that could make some noise in March, along with highlighting some of the standout players from these conferences.

Of the Bruins 20 games this season he has recorded a double-double in 11 of them, also sprinkling in a triple-double on November 22. He’s almost a sure bet to get one each game, if not come as close as possible by being a rebound or an assist shy. His 11 double-doubles are the most on his team and in the Pac-12 this season.
