College basketball has taken some real hits lately. The end of the Kentucky-Indiana series is a blow to the sport and the latest rivalry to go away. Think about the end of the Border War between Kansas and Missouri. I called the last meeting at Columbia and you can feel the emotion and passion of the two schools. Texasand Texas A&M, natural rivals, probably won’t meet again on the hardwood after the Aggies left for the SEC. Down the line the Syracuse-Georgetown rivalry will come to a close. In the 1980s, that Big East pairing was as good as it gets.
