Monday Morning Dump

It was a very busy weekend in the CBball world. In fact, it was a pretty awesome sporting weekend. But we got  lots to get to today. Not time for chit-chat.

 Let's get after it

Busy weekend for the Pac-12: Oregon State beat Texas at the Legends Classic thanks to a 32-point performance from Jared Cunningham. The junior forward had a legitimate "breakout performance". Jeff Eisenberg explains why this victory is an indication that Robinson has the program improving. This win might just be the biggest of Robinson's career

- Over in Eugene, Ore., the Ducks find out that freshman Jabari Brown is leaving the program. Rush The Court's Andrew Murawa provides a great take on the situation

- The Washington Huskies got beat up and knocked around by the Saint Louis Billikens, 77-64. The Huskies are now 0-9 in non-league 'true' road openers under Lorenzo Romar

- The Kentucky Wildcats didn't come ready to play in held on for a hard-fought victory Old Dominion, 62-52 (Norlander used the word "Hogswash". Kinda funny, right?)

With the NBA locked out this season, why not try your hand at some college fantasy hoops action Click here to enter. Seriously, there is no NBA season this year. Fill the fantasy basketball void with FanDuel's fantasy college hoops. We will be there all year playing weekly games, and we urge you to take us on. League name: Ballinisahabit
