• College Basketball Is A Comin

    Though NCAA Football may take the spotlight as soon as the new school year begins, NCAA basketball waits not far off in the shadows. While the nose tackles and linebackers are grinding it out on the gridiron, the guards and forwards are running suicides and ladders to get into shape for the winter/spring. In preseason power rankings, it should come to no surprise that Duke, UCLA, and UNC are among the top ten favorites to win it this year. However, also included in those lists are: Georgetown, Kansas (defending champions), Memphis, Tennessee, and Xavier; all teams with the potential to win the NCAA Championship in April. Teams like UCLA and UNC will face additional challenges this season. UCLA loses its freshman star Kevin Love to the Minnesota Timberwolves and will have to find a suitable replacement to put up similar numbers. UNC also lost key players, but also faces problems with Ty Lawson who was arrested for DUI earlier in the summer. He may face probation from the NCAA. As it stands, the NCAA title is quite up for grabs. If you want to see NCAA basketball live, visit our NCAA basketball page.
