‘Tis The Season…
by Terrence Mayrose
WLTW-FM 106.7 in New York began playing Christmas music 24 hours a day starting the day after Thanksgiving. I would argue the station may be a little excessive with their “holiday spirit”, but nonetheless it brings up a very good point, the Christmas season is here; whether we want it to be or not.
In the college basketball world, coaches and players are approaching a time that is just as difficult as the Christmas season…conference play. The same way normal fans must deal with shopping, traffic, cold weather, and untangling the lights; college coaches must deal with their own struggles of hostile student sections, academic eligibility, road trips, and most importantly winning games.
In the first installment of this year’s Triangle and Two blog, I thought it’d be a good time to use Christmas songs to explain some of the story lines on the college hardwood thus far.
