College basketball can be insane. Another season of the good, the bad, and the ugly on the collegiate hardwood will commence. I am pleased to open up another thread on the crazy world of college basketball here on GTPlanet. If you love college basketball, this your thread for the 2018-2019 season. To a lot of people, a lot of the usual schools you hear of are mentioned a lot in college hoops. But if you are fairly new and coming from college football, you may hear of many schools that don't have proper football programs. Schools like Marquette and Gonzaga are among many schools without proper college football programs. Whereas there are probably a total of 200 or so schools in NCAA FBS and FCS, there are about 330+ schools in NCAA Division 1. Everything from major schools to smaller schools all compete in college basketball. On the competition front, there is a reason why college basketball is so loved- minor programs beating big programs. Last season saw Loyola University of Chicago- which has won the National Championship before- make it all the way to the Final Four last season. You love to see the little program contend with the big ones. Tournament play will do that. Every team wants to make that resumé to play for a National Championship. Who'll be the best this coming season, though? We'll find out! Remember- this thread is for any and all college basketball discussion. Heck, if you want to talk about college basketball in Canada or the Philippines (there is an NCAA in the Philippines), that's all good here too. NAIA and NJCAA college hoops are fair game here. Non NCAA Division 1 college hoops is also welcome here. Also, men's AND women's hoops are welcome for discussion here as well. Here is a look back at last season's champions: NCAA D1 Men: Villanova NCAA D1 Women: Notre Dame NCAA D2 Men: Ferris State NCAA D2 Women: Central Missouri NCAA D3 Men: Nebraska Wesleyan NCAA D3 Women: Amherst (undefeated! Back-to-back titles!) NIT Men: Penn State NIT Women: Indiana CIT: Northern Colorado CBI: North Texas NAIA D1 Men: Graceland (Iowa) NAIA D1 Women: Freed-Hardeman (Tennessee) NAIA D2 Men: Indiana Wesleyan NAIA D2 Women: Dakota Wesleyan (South Dakota) NJCAA D1 Men: South Plains NJCAA D1 Women: Tallahassee NJCAA D2 Men: Triton NJCAA D2 Women: Monroe (New York) NJCAA D3 Men: Brookdale (New Jersey) NJCAA D3 Women: Hostos We'll see who will be this season's champs. The ball is tipped on college hoops. Want to chat on college hoops? Go!
