Two stories worth mentioning from college basketball:
1.) My Syracuse Orange are up to No. 20 in the latest poll. Seems low to me, but I'm a bit bias.
2.) Trey Thompkins has played two games this season and hadn't had a single full practice session prior to that first game, yet he still managed to earn the SEC's freshman of the week honors. Thompkins has tallied 33 points, nine blocks and five blocks in just over 40 minutes of action. It's easy to see why there was so much excitement over him.Don't forget the Bulldogs travel to Western Kentucky tomorrow for what should be their first real test against a strong opponent.
