Folks, it’s time to address the elephant in the room. For the past three months, I’ve remained silent on this issue, foolishly thinking, hoping, that the NCAA would right their clear-as-day mistake and fix college basketball. But no. It’s January 17, three weeks into conference play, and I have yet to see Perry Ellis.
Monday night saw an exciting-as-hell throwback to a different time for college basketball: the two best teams in the country facing off, each led by a senior. In the end, Perry Ellis (27 points, 13 rebounds) and #1 Kansas topped Buddy Hield (46 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists) and #2 Oklahoma, 109-106 in triple overtime.
