Now that virtually every school on the landscape of NCAA Basketball has at least a few games in the books here in 2014-15, definitive trends are beginning to show up among the 351 Division I teams. This week’s College Campus Tour will examine the extreme ends of the offensive-to-defensive spectrum.
With early season tournaments providing plenty of compelling matchups across the NCAA Basketball landscape, as they tend to do on an annual basis, one such showdown from this past Sunday (Nov. 23) at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut is where this week’s College Campus Tour begins.
The NCAA men’s basketball season has officially gotten under way, and with that it is time to take a look back at some of the sensational statistical feats around the nation over the first few days of the campaign.
• Missouri State seems like a great place to start, as Bears junior guard Marcus Marshall knocked the starting gates of the 2014-15 season right off their hinges with a 38-point performance (12-16 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 8-8 FT) versus Eastern Illinois Friday. This incredible effort is even more impressive when considering the fact that this marked Marshall’s first game back after missing the final 17 contests of last season due to knee surgery.
