Football season got you down? The prospect of a Rays/Phils series doesn't get you excited? Don't worry, this weekend marks the official tip off of the college basketball season and the Madness has attracted numerous visitors coast to coast including Xavier Henry.
The action is hot and heavy at Kansas
this weekend. Recruiting junkies will have no trouble recognizing the talent on those campuses.
The most amazing stat of the week comes from North Carolina State's campus. On Thursday, the Pack hosted a bevy of committed and talented prospects including No. 2 John Wall. On Friday morning, No. 1 Derrick Favors touches down in Raleigh giving the Pack one of those rare occasions where it hosts No. 1 and No. 2 on consecutive days. Big time move!
