If you need the Big Ten-ACC Challenge to get excited about November hoops, you're at the wrong site. If you like to see upper-class mid-majors getting shots at taking down nearby power conference schools, then you have the kind of attention span we like around here.
Near-consensus preseason MVC pick Northern Iowa and Wooden Award watchlister Ben Jacobson
battle Iowa State of the Big VIII+IV tonight in the nation's heartland. The Panthers will hope to take a chunk of their 33-7 deficit in the all-time series, and with the stunned Cyclones reeling from a loss to Iona in their own tournament
, they have a solid chance to do just that. (Honorable mention to Hofstra-St. John's
, because that's the kind of kick-'em-when-they're-down thing that never gets old.)
