OVC Basketball
We’re starting to see conference previews come out, including the one I wrote for Rush the Court. agrees with me that Tennessee Tech is the favorite to win the conference, and has every team within a few spots of where I believe they’ll finish. Here’s what I noticed about their preview: CBS also put UT Martin over Eastern Kentucky, and Eastern Illinois, and has Morehead State struggling in the middle of the conference. Another thing we agreed on: we both have Tennessee Tech as a 15-seed in the NCAA Tournament. What did we disagree on? Well, not much, seeing as we also both named the exact same preseason all-OVC team. Sporting News also released their picks, with an identical top 4 to CBS.

Former OVC star Kenneth Faried is making a splash even during the lockout. He’s been playing with the Big Blue All Stars in exhibition games across the Bluegrass State, and was at the receiving end of a sick no-look alley opp from Rajon Rondo.
