There really aren't any headline games on the college basketball schedule Monday but there are some games that may be able to hold one's interest for a little while. First off, Rutgers heads south to take on North Carolina in Chapel Hill. To say the least it would be a serious disappointment if Fred Hill's team were pasted like they were in last season's meeting (97-75). North Carolina won the battle on the boards 40-26 and shot 51.5% from the field, but that was a far more seasoned outfit than the one the Scarlet Knights will face on Monday.
With usual Pac-10 powers Arizona and UCLA in re-loading mode, the door is open for California & Washington to put their stamp on the 2009-10 season.
TUCSON, Ariz. - University of Arizona men's basketball player Kevin Parrom will be sidelined due to a stress fracture in his left foot.
Parrom, a 6-foot-6, 205-pound, freshman guard/forward from the Bronx, N.Y., averaged 8.0 point, 2.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game in Arizona's two exhibition games.
The normal recovery time for this type of injury is four to eight weeks.
Ranking players is more art then science. How do you compare the potential of freshmen with seniors who have already peaked? How much does physical talent come into play versus intangibles and experience? How big a role do numbers play? All of these questions make lists like this fun and debatable.. if you disagree with CHN's rankings, post what you think below.
