As the calendar changes from November to December, the competitive elite in college basketball will look to establish some distance between themselves and the rest of the country. However, programs such as Xavier and Wichita State will look to battle fiercely in non-conference play to keep themselves at the top of the weekly rankings. Between now and mid-March, there will be a plethora of programs competing for supremacy while others will seek to garner impressive wins now to have a chance at simply making the NCAA Tournament. Undoubtedly, upsets will abound and unknown programs will become competitive sleepers as this week unfolds.
