I’m a couple days late on the power rankings this week, but there is no truth to the rumor that I went on a five-day bender following IU’s win over Kentucky. There is, however, truth to the rumor that the Hoosiers are back in the top 20 after a long hiatus.
Now that the college basketball season is about a month old, it’s time for the first installment of the Bottoms Line College Basketball Power Rankings.
This week, Andy, Troy, and Rob discuss: the unfortunate knee injuries to Tim Abromaitis and Trevor Mbakwe; Harvard; struggling Big East teams; and a look at how UNC will respond to their first loss. Also, a look ahead to a few big games over the weekend.
Throughout the season, Andy Bottoms will highlight notable games so you can plan your weeknights and weekends accordingly. This week is fairly light until we get to Friday…when there are over 120 games to choose from, including the much anticipated Carrier Classic between Michigan State and North Carolina.
With the 2011-12 basketball season just a week away, it’s time to preview the ACC and make some picks and predictions for the upcoming season, including the conference champion and player of the year.
