College Basketball Picks Weekend 1

College basketball is here, as the season tips off today, and our writing staff will be doing weekly picks throughout the entire season. How this will work is we’re going to break the week into two parts; the weekday (Mon-Thu), and the weekend (Fri-Sun). In each part we’re gonna pick the top 10 games based on Kenpom excitement score. This might leave out some of the bigger teams or names, but it’ll get us to pick what should be the closest, most exciting games. We’ll track records throughout the year, and the winner will probably be left with bragging rights and no cool prize. Here’s the picks for the first weekend of the season, which is adjusted to last from today until Sunday. All rankings come from the Sideline Sports Top 25
