ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the performance of various college basketball teams. Texas University lost to Duke University and Tennessee by 48 points combined. Memphis didn't get invited to join any of the big-time conferences, and good thing for all those leagues. Memphis is getting 76 points per game from players in their first or second years of college ball and has a 5-1 record against teams from the big-money conferences. Not everything about Bruce Weber's recruiting at Illinois has been perfect, but critics should at least have watched him shoot before commenting.
