Non-conference play is always entertaining and helps shed some light on where the conferences stand relative to each other, but there’s just something special about league games.
The intensity, passion and effort are ramped up, and basketball palaces finally start to completely fill to capacity as bitter rivals and longtime foes face off.

With that in mind, read on to see where the conferences rank against each as we are now in Week 10. Also, feel free to let me know what you think in the comments below.
