PLAYER TO WATCH
Collin Sexton, G, Alabama
Sexton outplayed fellow freshman star Trae Young in Alabama’s victory over Oklahoma last weekend, scoring 18 points. But the Crimson Tide fell Wednesday at home to Missouri, as Sexton put up 23. He will try to keep his team in NCAA tournament contention Saturday at No. 23 Florida.
game of the weekend
Seton Hall at (1) Villanova
11 a.m. Sunday, Ch. 9: I know what you’re thinking: Why watch college basketball on Super Bowl Sunday? Well, because why not check out the nation’s top team play a tough Big East opponent or possibly get upset while you’re stuffing your face before the big game.
Big week for the Boilers
Purdue just keeps rolling with 18 consecutive victories going into this weekend’s game at Rutgers. (So it will be 19 soon.) The Boilermakers are fun to watch, but are they really the Big Ten’s top team? The true test is next week, when they face Ohio State and Michigan State. Can’t wait.
