College Hoops 101 (11-15-10)

TCU football

I have discovered a dangerous tool that will immensely help my college basketball viewing this season.  Last year my cable provider did not let me access ESPN360.com.  This year, I can successfully get ESPN3.com as it is now called.  EUREKA!

This is scary on so many levels.  Not only can I now multi-task and watch two games at once, but I can also catch any ESPN televised game I want at any time with the replay tool.  This is like locking a sex addict in a room with ten naked girls and telling him to behave himself.

If you are unfamiliar with College Hoops 101, it is a weekly feature here at The Sports Bank that runs every Monday and breaks down everything you need to know going on in the world of college hoops.  I will look back at the previous week and peak ahead to some of the key match-ups in the next seven days.  In case you missed it, be sure to check out my first Field of 68 (aka Bracketology) in which I predict the NCAA Tournament brackets and all of my in-depth team previews.

99 in 99: #17 Memphis Tigers

Josh Pastner

Under first year head coach Josh Pastner, the Memphis Tigers’ reign of dominance in Conference USA came to an end as they lost a league game for the first time in more than three seasons.  With one of the best recruiting classes in the country, Memphis should re-establish their control of the conference and once again be a major factor on the national scene.

The Sports Bank’s “99 in 99” ranks the 72 power conference college basketball teams and top 27 mid-majors.  Click here if you missed teams #17-#99.
