College basketball’s opening weekend has not disappointed. Almost every team has played at least once, and there’s been a healthy dose of upsets and competitive games. After taking a backseat to college football yesterday, you should be able to catch up on some hoops today.
The schedule is highlighted by Chattanooga visiting North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The Mocs are coming off a win against Tennessee, and should have a chance to be competitive. Yale at Washington is another one to keep an eye on, as is Eastern Michigan at SMU.
Also, its almost that time of year to get into the preseason tournaments. Our manager Russ put together a contest called the Silver Sword, and you should definitely enter it for a chance to win prizes. The rules and page to enter can be found here. It should be a lot of fun, and provides some extra intrigue when watching the tournaments.
Now, let’s get to today’s schedule. All times listed are Eastern.
