What Im watching this weekend in faculty basketball Convention play begins.
Jamie Dixon likes to joke that anybody who offers his resume a fast look will come to the identical conclusion.
“My aim appears to be to teach within the hardest league within the nation yearly of my profession,” Dixon laughed.
First it was the Huge East, with Pittsburgh. Then Pitt transitioned to the ACC. And now the second 12 months TCU-coach finds himself within the Huge 12, house of six ranked groups which have gone a mixed 102-16 in non-conference play.
However solely the Horned Frogs (12-Zero) are undefeated. In actual fact, they’re one in all solely three undefeated groups left in faculty hoops (Villanova and Arizona State spherical out the group). However because the Huge 12 begins convention play this week, everybody has the identical query. Can TCU — or any of the opposite Huge 12 groups who’ve notched spectacular non-conference wins — break the stranglehold that Kansas has on the Huge 12 regular-season crown?
