Not too early to start stuffing parts of your brain with hopefully tantalizing matchups at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas after we cram our stomachs with the traditional stuffing and cranberry sauce.
It will feature Cal and San Diego State, both schools hoping to use this game to pad their resumes for possible inclusion into the 2016 NCAA Tournament.
The other matchup will have West Virginia taking on Richmond. Both teams by most reporters and fellow bloggers have both the Mountainers and Spiders possibly being some of the last bubble teams sweating things out in the first days of March. Finishing in the middle of their respective conferences would not be a bad measuring stick as far as rebuilding their programs is concerned.
Expect a lot of cool defense to be played, just in case if the shooting takes a holiday (see, no Green Day reference just yet).
A little over three months remain until my comprehensive 2015-2016 college basketball season preview will hit your inboxes and smartphones.
Something to look forward to. In the meantime, have a pleasant day.
