    Points are the way teams win games. You can argue defense, you can argue rebounding. But if you don’t put the ball in the basket, you don’t win. I know, that’s expert analysis. Now that we’re a few weeks into the season some players are starting to show how good they are at putting said…

    The focus of the college basketball facilities arms race may be on high-majors, but don’t think the same desire for upgrades doesn’t exist within the mid-major ranks, too.
