Here's my take on the weekend's best and worst in college basketball. Remember, these apply to only this weekend's games, not the whole season ...

Best Game: New Mexico vs. Texas A&M in Houston

I named New Mexico the Best "Unknown" Team last week, but the Lobos are not unknown anymore. The secret is out. Darington Hobson and Roman Martinez led the way with 18 and 22 points, respectively, to thwart a magnificent 29-point performance by Donald Sloan of the Aggies. The game was well-played by two NCAA tournament teams -- both will be heard from in their leagues and in March. Great game.
