Still more than two months till college basketball season tips off? Posh, says SI.com's Luke Winn. In his latest blog, Winn ranks the upcoming tournaments that help shape the college hoop season. And the Memphis Tigers just happen to be scheduled to play in the top two.

Writes Winn, "New York is not necessarily the best place for a college basketball writer (like myself) to live during January, February, and March. ...

"In November and December, however, a wonderful phenomenon occurs: the best of college hoops simply comes to us in Manhattan. I spent this morning -- once I finished my last college football preview piece, that is -- looking through hoops schedules with the intention of returning to regular blogging. And I've come to the pleasant realization that the top three early-season events are all at Madison Square Garden, just a short subway ride away." Read more at SI.com.
