The college basketball season starts tonight!  The college basketball season starts tonight!  The college basketball season starts tonight!  To say I’m slightly excited is a gross under-exaggeration; like saying Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries probably should have never gotten married.

If you are unfamiliar with College Hoops 101, it is a weekly feature here at The Sports Bank that breaks down everything you need to know going on in the world of college basketball.  Every Monday I will look back at the previous week’s action, break down what to expect in the week ahead, and most importantly, update you on the obscene amount of games I have watched.

Click here in case you missed my 111 team previews in 111 days to check out the in-depth profiles.
