The first month of the college hoops season has already had enough defining moments to warrant the Luther Vandross treatment.

There was the poignant high of Coach K surpassing his mentor Bob Knight as the all-time leader in NCAA D-I coaching wins; the gut-wrenching (and ongoing) low of Syracuse assistant Bernie Fine throwing his program into scandal; the inspiring comeback stories of Arizona forward Kevin Parrom and Kansas forward Thomas Robinson; made-for-March upsets like UNLV over North Carolina, Presbyterian over Cincinnati, and Central Florida over UConn; and big-time matchups like Ohio State vs. Duke, Kentucky vs. Kansas, and Syracuse vs. Florida that were dipped in Tournament atmosphere.

This past weekend, though, gave us the most thrilling game, the highest display of talent, and the most grand exhibition of the best of college basketball, all wrapped in one 40-minute showcase in Lexington, Ky. Here is that game, plus the rest of the best and worst of the weekend:

    Great post AB.

    Scoop was PISSING me off against Florida. He’s the ultimate love/hate player in the Cuse community. If he can just limit the mistakes he makes, I love Cuse’s chances.

    I was watching Leonard play the other day and definitely see him as a Lottery pick. He’s only going to get better.

    Leonard can play, though his rebounding numbers are low. He’s either gonna be Brook Lopez, or turn himself into a shooter and become Steve Novak.
