Monday Morning Dump

The first week of the seaosn is in the books, and despite a cupcake-heavy schedule, we were privy to a handful of good games, some upsets, a few close finishes, and a solid number of #POSTERIZED dunks.,

- Butler wasn't the only team to lose in controversial fashion. Vermont, one of their mid-major brethren, lost to South Florida due to a late game clock malfunction

- Kevin Parrom is back and playing, even though he's not completely healthy yet. That's probably the best news of the weekend.

- Ten thoughts from Jason King from the opening weekend

- Mike Marra tore his acl. The injury was gruesome, and frankly, he's lucky he didn't tear everything else. Louisville has just been obliterated with injury issues. Wayne Blackshear is also out for the year, while Rakeem Buckles won't be available until December. Good thing the Cardinals are deep.

With Marathon Madness beginning tomorrow, we urge you to join's free fantasy basketball leagues. Us B.I.A.Hers will be hosting games over there all year, and we want you to join. The leagues, which are completely free to enter, starts on Nov. 15th and features $200 in prizes. Even better, if you beat us (Username: Ballinisahabit), you'll win an extra $5. Winners will be paid out that evening. So see if you can use your college hoops knowledge to win some prize money. With the NBA locked out, try your hand at some college fantasy hoops action this season. Click here to enter. Seriously, there is no NBA season this year. Fill the fantasy basketball void with FanDuel's fantasy college hoops

- Coach K and Bob Knight are now tied for first place in the all-time wins column. With a win over Michigan State in the Garden on Tuesday, K will set the record for most career wins.

- The story behind UNC's decision to play in Asheville just 48 hours after the Carrier Classic.

- Binghamton's Kyrie Sutton was dismissed from the team earlier in the week, and according to this report, it was with good reason

- CBS will be tracking the performances of the freshmen this season.

- Life is returning to normal for Robbie Hummel. For us, too. I like seeing 21 in the points column next to his name.

- St. Joseph's won't approve of a waiver that would grant post-graduate Todd O'Brien the chance to transfer to UAB and play for the Blazers

- Indiana freshman Cody Zeller took a cheap shot in the pills from Stony Brook's Danny Carter

- Washington freshman Jernard Jarreau will redshirt the season

- A bracket prediction after just one week. I have some serious issues with this: Missouri as a #13-seed? Indiana as a #13-seed too? #awwcomeonman
