Matthew Puckett: Ready or not, basketball is here


Whether we are ready for it or not, basketball is upon us.
For those of you that don’t know, I actually do not dislike basketball. I thoroughly enjoy it early in the season.
My enjoyment starts to fade about halfway through the year before being totally zapped come playoff time.

That’s not an indictment on our teams around here, my excitement just tends to fade about 30 games into a season--unless we are talking about Chicago Cubs baseball, but that’s another matter entirely.
As of right now, I’m going to delve into my readiness and games/players I’ve seen or heard about through some good, old-fashioned word-of-mouth.
I love to do things in alphabetical order, so that’s how I’ll go about this--alphabetical order by school name.
