NCAA Basketball: Kansas at Missouri Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports


It’s officially exhibition season for football, but if you’re a basketball fan there’s a fantastic slate of games ahead. It’s all started by your Missouri Tigers, by the way, when they face off against the UCF Knights.

Inseason Preview here

The College Basketball season has been a bit of a whirlwind so far, just 7 unbeaten teams remain. New Mexico & UNLV are both 10-0 despite not having cracked the top 70 in KenPom. The Lobos have just one top 100 KenPom win, UNLV has two over Washington State and Dayton. A third Mountain West team is undefeated with the 9-0 Utah State Aggies. Utah State has just one top 100 win, over 88th rated Oral Roberts, but also just one outside the top 200 (and one win over a non-D1 opponent).

The rest are all top 25 teams. 23rd rated (per Mississippi State has two solid wins over Utah and Marquette and are 17th in the AP Poll. Virginia, Purdue, and UConn all haven’t lost and are 1, 2 and 3 in the AP poll. But 1st (UConn), 5th (Purdue), and 9th (Virginia) in KenPom.

17 teams in the top 25 are in action today including 4 top 25 matchups. Alabama plays Gonzaga, Houston plays Virginia, UCLA plays Kentucky, and Tennessee and Arizona have a night cap. All in all, it should be a fun day for Men’s College Hoops!
