UNLV has picked up Derrick Jasper (UK) and Chase Stanback (UCLA) due to transfers. Kruger with two solid additions.

Being from England, I admit I don't know **** about college ball unless were talking march madness... Thanks for breaking down the better players in each conference. Care to actually tell me who is in each conference and how well you expect them to do?

I think I might start supporting a college team (one that has British talent ofcourse :D) ...

The Big East, ACC, Big 12, and Pac-10 are your better basketball conferences. The SEC and big 10 are both decent leagues too. I'll go over the top teams later as right now it's about to storm bat **** crazy at my house.

I just headed over to the Pac-10 board and there is nothing of interest!!! Grrr. I guess I will have to try and spark some conversations, despite my HUGE lack of knowledge on the subject.
