Three Stars of The Day
We handpick the best performances of the day, whether it be stat lines that make you drool, or clutch performances. Either way, its our way of showing the love:
Things change quickly in college basketball. What was a dirty word in March – NIT – is now a positive. For teams on the bubble last March, the prospect of playing in the NIT instead of the NCAA tournament was hard to stomach. However, now that it is November, playing in the NIT – the Dick’s Sporting Good NIT Season Tip-Off – is a welcome experience.
With some of the best newcomers in the country, the Big 12 is building an underrated talent-base. While teams like Kansas and Texas get attention, the bottom half of the league still has some quality players.
1. Brandon Rush, SG, Kansas - Iffy pick for #1, but can do it all if healthy
2. DJ Augustin, PG, Texas - Has a chance to be the nation's best point guard
3. Michael Beasley, PF, Kansas State - Freshman is a preseason CHN All-American
4. Aleks Maric, C, Nebraska - Hard to argue with 19 and 9 per game
