On Thursday, the Big 12 announced its league schedule this year. That brought with it the dates that were immediately circled on every college basketball fan's calender: Kansas vs. Oklahoma State. Or, for those who love the stars, Andrew Wiggins vs. Marcus Smart.
It has been awhile in college basketball since the sport had as many known stars heading into a season as is the case this upcoming year. Some of players, like Wiggins, have yet to play a minute of college ball, but we already feel like we know these guys.
You know when a network is trying to hype a game and they put up the most recognizable name from each team? Most years their best bet is putting up the faces of the coaches. Not this year. Similar to the NBA, the star players will be the attraction and what is publicized.
Lucky for us, the schedule-makers were kind and many of the biggest stars will go up against each other. These are 10 of the most DVR-worthy player matchups.
