January marks the start of conference play in college basketball, and that means Division I teams will finally pick on people their own size.
Seven non-conference games were decided by more than 70 points. According to STATS, that's the most blowouts of that magnitude since at least 1996-97.
No game illustrated the early-season mismatches more than Southern's 116-12 win over tiny Champion Baptist this week.
Usually low-major teams in Division I round out the schedules of risk-averse mid-majors and power-conference teams in November and December. But there also are plenty of non-Division I teams willing to take beatings to help meet their budgets, give their players the experience of playing against big-time competition for a night and gain exposure.
