College Basketball Weekly Preview: 11/17

Welcome to College Basketball Season!

Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning TCR Nation, and welcome to a new thread highlighting the best "games of the week" from Monday to Sunday (yes, I missed a slew of games on Monday...promise it won't happen again).  Unlike like our College Football's "Games to Watch" thread, this will not include GIFs (sorry 'bout that).  However, that does not discourage you from posting your own GIFs that are related to each school in the comment section below!  Also, we will be predicting the scores of the Illini games every week...with the most correct predictions at the end of the season getting something neat (still yet to be comment on that too).  Without further ado, let's take a look! (Starting with the Illini)
