The holidays got in the way. Instead, consider this an open hoops thread. Tell us who impressed you this past week (Mizzou, Texas) and who didn't (Baylor, Kansas State), and give some nominations for the Hoop M Nation non-con All Big 12 team, which will be announced next week . Talk about the defections (Standhardinger), the suspensions (Pullen, Kelly) and the ascencions (Selby). Reevaluate the conference race based on what you've seen so far. Who's up? Who's down? Who's the big surprise, both good and bad? Let's hoop it up.
