This is the best time of year. College basketball is on almost every night. And, this year, the level of competition is stunning. In years past, being ranked #1 always put a target on your back, but this year it seems there are many more teams capable of hitting that target. This past weekend, #2 Duke lost to unranked Maryland. Anytime Duke loses is a good day to be alive. (Sorry Rick!) But, seriously, can anyone remember a season in which so many teams were capable of knocking of ranked teams? My UConn Huskies are not having a great year, but I can't let that get in the way of appreciating the level of play. When the world is beset my so much seriousness, there is much to be said for sitting down at night with a margarita and watching a college basketball game.
