and return to the big freeze, some things to distract you:

From Graham: All hail the Big Ten (finally!)

Best team not enough people are paying attention to (unless, of course, you’re a loyal WHB reader!): St. Bonaventure. More on the Bonnies in the days to come, but a 64-52 win against St. Louis moved them to 3-0 in the Atlantic 10 for the first time in program history, and 16-2 overall. With wins against Marist, Duquesne, St. John’s, Temple and West Virginia, and losses against only Delaware and Villanova (the latter without second-leading scorer Megan Van Tatenhove, because of injury), St. Bonaventure has earned more support in the polls than it’s getting at the moment. Seven days ago, before a midweek win at Temple and the weekend win against St. Louis, it received just one vote in the AP poll and none in the coaches’ poll — in which St. John’s and West Virginia each received votes.

From Mechelle: Kentucky on top of the SEC: After toppling No. 7 Tennessee earlier in week, Wildcats add win over South Carolina

“Once you get into the league, sometimes you aren’t able to impose your will at the same level that you could maybe in the nonconference schedule,” Kentucky coach Matthew Mitchell said. “What I’ve been encouraged about so far this season is that we’ve won a won a couple of up-tempo, high-scoring, and we won a pretty grind-it-out game that was very physical and tough in [Florida]. To be really good in the Southeastern Conference, you have to be able to what’s happening that night.”

The No. 8 Wildcats did that twice in the past week, and it has put them in the driver’s seat of the SEC.
