Away Game: I’ll Be Rushing the Court This Season

Hello, readers. Did you enjoy your Thanksgiving? Of course you did. I’m happy for you.

Anyway, things have been a tad quiet around these parts and for that, I am sorry. During the season, I never like to post consecutive This Weeks in Hoops (correct pluralization?) without another piece for you to enjoy between. Turkey Day and the real life business made that more difficult this week, though they aren’t the actual reason for no content here at PB this week.

I did write a post about basketball, but it does not live here on my blog. Instead, I made my debut as a national columnist at Rush the Court (that’s RushTheCourt dot net). If you wanted someone to compare college basketball teams to Thanksgiving foods, I think you might like it.

If you aren’t familiar with RTC, I highly recommend checking out everything they have to offer. They not only produce great coverage of the national college scene but have individual micro-sites for the major conferences and the mid-major landscape.

This season, I’ll be contributing for RTC throughout the season. I’ll alert you to my work on that site, in a shameless promotional move, as a part of the “Essential Reading” section of This Week in Hoops. Keep an eye there or on my Twitter feed (@OnTheShaneTrain) for all updates.

Palestra Back will be even more fun this year and now there’s a new way for you to read my hoops related thoughts. Let’s have some fun.
