This time of the year is all about friends and family, turkey and pie, and plenty of football to take up the days.

Better make some room for some basketball, too.

The rise of exempt tournaments the past few years has turned the week of Thanksgiving into a reason to give thanks for some college hoops. Just about every day is overflowing with tantalizing matchups, which not only serve as Top 25 shake-ups during the early portion of the season, but could act as resume-builders when March rolls around.
