Southern Comfort

By - October 11, 2006

One hundred ninety days have passed since I last covered a college basketball event -- a little tangle in Indianapolis between Florida and UCLA. But as I type these words from the Big South media day at the Renaissance Suites in Charlotte, N.C., your faithful narrator's offseason is coming to its official end.

Sure, the recruiting game gives us college hoop junkies something to satiate our fix during the summer months. But there's nothing like this parade of media days in October and early November to hammer home the fact that basketball -- the games that matter -- are just weeks away. (Twenty-seven days, to be exact.)

After the noon luncheon concludes, media will have the opportunity to speak with all the league's coaches and a number of players from each ballclub -- including (semi-spoiler alert) the conference's yet-to-be-officially-announced Preseason Player of the Year: Winthrop's Torrell Martin.
