It’s January, which means two things for college basketball fans: the start of conference play, and the return of Big Monday on ESPN. We try to do open threads around here for most big primetime games, and thus, every — or at least, most — Mondays, we will have an some open threadage for all of you to discuss the games, and life, or whatever it is you want to talk about.
On tap for tonight: a Big East throw down between 4th-ranked Villanova and host, Louisville (or Lullvull, as the locals pronounce it… trust me on this one). That game’s at 7, Eastern time. After that, we get an in-state Big 12 matchup with Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. Biggest reason to watch that game: the chance that Tiny Gallon shatters another backboard.
Let the festivities begin. By the way, tonight, the house rules are BYOB, since I’ll likely be working part of the night. And as usual, don’t break any of SouvenirCity’s Starting Lineup figurines… he hates when people mess with those things.
