It’s just a huge bloody pain to cover 14 SEC football teams and 14 SEC basketball teams all at once. The football fans wonder why we waste space on “preseason” basketball. The hoops fanatics are ready to jump into their sport with both feet so they want more coverage of their sport than football. It’s brutal.
And some folks wonder why we don’t cover women’s basketball, baseball and softball. Yikes.
But with basketball season underway, here’s a quickie look at what’s on tap today… including one SEC game already in the books:
UMass 92, LSU 90 in Amherst, Massachusetts. The Tigers — picked to finish fourth in the league at SEC Media Days last month — led only once in losing their season-opener. Looks like the SEC is pickup where it left off last spring.
