CANMORE, Alta. — The second weekend of the 2017-18 season is officially in the books, and what a Sunday we all experienced to cap it off.
Admittedly, the first week of the season had its moments where it was a bit underwhelming. A lack of upsets left excitement on the table and fans wanting more, but we also got to experience our fair share of exciting basketball and close games. College basketball is unpredictable with each passing game, which is why we take it all in stride.
November 19th brought a little bit of everything to the forefront. A trio of early-season tournaments came to a close, a pair of top ten teams dodged upset bids, and we witnessed our fair share of overtime games that had fans on the edge of their seats right to the final buzzer.
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.
