The season's proving ground starts now

February 2006
Sporting News;2/10/2006, Vol. 230 Issue 6, p42
The article focuses on the performance of several college basketball players, coaches and teams in the U.S. February is a brutal month. Teams tire, they face conference opponents for a second time, and they keep checking RPI rankings instead of focusing on improving. February is when men, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association Tournament teams, are made. It's a month that will be crucial for coach Jim Calhoun, player Mike Jones, and the team of Kansas State University. The team has about as favorable a schedule as a team can have in searching to prove itself as tournament-caliber.
