Men's college basketball is at full speed in December with continuing LIVE coverage on ESPN.
ESPN’s season coverage of Men’s College Basketball continues LIVE in December, spotlighting all the action in the major conferences, among them the Big Ten, ACC, Pac-12, Big 12, SEC, WCC and AAC, known as The American. December opens with coverage from one of the year’s most popular tournaments, the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Now in its 15th edition, this early-season tournament yearly spotlights many of the game’s toughest squads, among them preseason favorites like, this season, the ACC’s Louisville.
Along with Louisville, other teams to watch as the season unfolds include the SEC’s Kentucky – losers last season to UConn for the national title – and Florida, the Pac-12’s Arizona, the Big 12’s Kansas, Big Ten power Wisconsin and the ACC’s Duke and North Carolina. The WCC is certain to dish up more fireworks this year in the ongoing rivalry between mighty Gonzaga and scrappy St. Mary’s, the latter home to up-and-coming Australian center Jock Landale, while surprising Wichita State – in action against Alabama on the 17th – is pegged to be a strong contender for the NCAA Tournament.
