You think Bob Knight's gonna have a good Thanksgiving? He's certainly got a defense to be thankful for this year, as Texas Tech has looked impressive in each of its four season-opening wins this year, including tonight's 65-54 victory over Utah in the Preseason NIT semis at MSG. Unfortunately, the General won't get a crack at the #1 team in the nation - 'cause UConn's went down tonight, losing to Georgia Tech by 16. Which makes it fairly likely that TTU will get a 5-0 start and a Preseason NIT trophy Friday night.

Speaking of upsets, hello, Charlotte! The 49ers toppled defending champs Syracuse in their opener, in the Carrier Dome, 96-92 tonight. Think the rest of C-USA is suddenly a little worried?

The college hoops march to San Antonio's just getting started, folks... in the next week alone we get the Wooden Tradition in Indy (Louisville-Iowa and Indiana-Xavier), a likely Duke-Purdue final in the Great Alaska Shootout in Anchorage, and the always lip-smacking-good ACC-Big Ten Challenge (which this year features such main courses as Illinois-North Carolina and Duke-Michigan State). Yummy!
