With the exhibition season in full swing, and coming to a close early this week, that can mean only one thing.
The 2016-17 college basketball regular season is just around the corner!
Things get underway Friday, November 11th at Noon EST with the first regular season game of the season, and there will be a plethora of talent on display across all 32 conferences all season long.
Before the season gets started, we decided to hand out some preseason hardware, in the form of our Conference Player of the Year award and All-Conference Teams.
Along with that, we have the College Court Report All-Americans, and the Mid-Major Player of the Year Preseason Watch List. Links to all of the conference awards and the Watch List can be found at the bottom of each article.
Calihan Hall is proving to be a tough place for road teams to come in and notch a victory. Entering Monday night’s action, the Detroit Titans held a perfect 7-0 record on their home court, and were looking to notch their second win in conference play to send the home crowd happy once again.
Their opponent to start conference play just happened to be a perennial contender in the conference. The Cleveland State Vikings always seem to find themselves near the top of the Horizon League standings year after year, but they will need a strong push this season if they want to get back to the top. Cleveland State entered Monday with a 5-9 record overall, and were 0-1 in conference play.
