Kansas point guard Sherron CollinsThe "Octagon of Doom" offered up a charged atmosphere on Saturday night, a given when the rival Kansas Jayhawks are in the building. And the game didn't disappoint either, requiring an extra five minutes and a great play from Sherron Collins to determine the winner. With the 81-79 win the Jayhawks assume total control of the Big 12 race and stand a good chance of taking over the top spot in the national polls come Monday.

Kansas St vs Kansas: Big Game in the Little Apple

Jacob Pullen - KSUOne of the biggest games of the season, and possibly the best game of the weekend, will take place in one of the most unlikely places - Manhattan, Kansas.

Syracuse's Kris Joseph

Monday's rivalry game between Georgetown and Syracuse didn't get off to the best of starts for the home team, who fell behind 14-0 before the game was even three minutes old thanks primarily to the shooting of Austin Freeman (3-3 from deep during that sequence) with a Jason Clark trey being the final salvo in that outburst.

The WCC, CUSA, A10, MWC, WAC, and others have top-level rookies that can play with the best in the country. Here's a list of the Top 25 freshman in the country so far, with a bias on actual performance as opposed to potential. While players like UNC's John Henson may one day tear up NBA harcourts, this list focuses on the guys who are getting it done right now.

College Hoops Monday: Your Commentary

Syracuse forward Wes JohnsonMonday's headline game is one of the rivalries that shaped the early years of the Big East Conference, and with both Georgetown and Syracuse ranked in the Top 15 of the polls it's fitting that they meet again on the primetime stage. The game matches two of the conference's best shooting teams, with Syracuse ranking first in field goal percentage while the Hoyas are second. In regards to what they like to run there is a difference, with the Hoyas' system being more of the half-court variety that is among the most efficient offenses in the Big East.

Sherron Collins led the way with 33 points as the Jayhawks enjoyed a free throw margin of +20 in the second half (23-3) and a +14 in points scored from the charity stripe.
