…..just to name a few.

Budding star alert: we may have another Candace Parker-type on our hands in orange country. Freshman Meighan Simmons scored 22 points in tonight’s Lady Vol win. This is similar to what she’s been doing in Tennessee’s exhibition games.

UCLA had to rally to beat San Diego State.

Rutgers appears to be dead, and Cal looks like its rising again.

Earlier, ESPN’s Mechelle Voepel wrote about Baylor.

ESPN writers made their conference champion picks for the year, and they look very similar.

They also made mid-major picks.

Kara Lawson and Carolyn Peck discussed the season that is upon us.

ESPN also predicted this year’s All-Americans.

And in case you missed my Pac-10 previews, hoopfeed.com has consolidated them here.
