Hoops season is here

In our neck of the woods, as they like to say down South, college basketball has begun.

The NSU Demons, the darlings of last year's NCAA Tournament, opened the season tonight against Utah State at home.

It will be hard to top last year for college basketball excitement in the area. NSU became a national story by knocking off Big Ten champion Iowa in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. LSU went all the way to the Final Four before finally losing.

But there could be some early season excitement in the area. We just need Texas Tech to get off to a great start.

Indeed, if the Red Raiders roll through the early part of their schedule without a loss, legendary coach Bob Knight could tie the record for most coaching victories on Dec. 6 when the Red Raiders play Louisiana Tech in Ruston. Wouldn't that be a fun night?

Win that one and Knight could break the record on Dec. 9 against - Centenary.

So there could be some fun before conference play even begins.
