The last NCAA Basketball Sunday Mailbag saw a ton of teams having games canceled due to a Covid 19 shutdown. However, like everything, time heals all and as we switch on over into January, and teams start conference play more and more teams are getting cleared for their return to the court. Like I had mentioned previously the season is in no danger of not being completed.

Conference play is the best basketball of the year and it is the second season for a lot of teams. If you have a bad non-conference record the conference season can change a lot of fortunes given the auto-bid teams receive for winning the conference tournament. Everyone wants the coveted one seed heading into Championship week.

This week on the Sunday Mailbag, there were only two questions but in those two questions, they are going to require in-depth answers and require a lot of research. One question focuses on a coach who has recently been mentioned as a coach who may be on the hot seat. The other question takes us to a major conference to look at a power five team that has underperformed this season.  These are going to be some of the more debated topics in the game for the rest of the season.

As always, thank you to everyone who has ever submitted a question to the Sunday Mailbag. This article is made possible by those questions and a huge thank you to those who have read the article or interacted with me on Social Media. It truly does mean a lot and the Busting Brackets family really appreciates all of it.
