In my three-part series on Basketball throughout the world, I will take a look at all FIBA-recognized countries and the best players from those countries. In part one we looked at 101-213. Here are numbers 51-100 as we continue our countdown. Most of these players you still don’t know, although this time there are a few that may be recognizable, and many of them will never see the inside of an NBA gym but the game is spreading and has truly become global and…well…ya never know. Stay tuned for the top 50 coming next week.

Monday night’s National Championship game, which will be played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, will feature powerhouses Alabama and Clemson for the third time in four years. Nick Saban will be looking to overtake Bear Bryant with the seventh title of his career. As for Clemson, they have not been back to the National Championship since Deshaun Watson led the Tigers to a National Title win against Alabama, back in 2017.

History will be made in Frisco, Texas on Saturday, January 5 in the 2019 FCS Championship Game. North Dakota State and Eastern Washington will duel it out for the chance to become a champion forever. The Bison and Eagles are no strangers to the playoffs as they are both considered two of the top programs at the FCS level yearly. They also met three times before starting in the 2010 quarterfinals.

The Sugar Bowl is not part of the College Football Playoff semifinal this year, but it’s still a good bowl to be in as it features the fifth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs, who are 11-2 and the fifteenth ranked Texas Longhorns, who are 9-4. Two big name schools and some great coaching makes this game a must-watch chess game as there will be a lot of schematics left and right and it will surely be a bloodbath till the end with all the positional talent.

“The Grand Daddy of them All” – Keith Jackson
We all grew up hearing the legendary tone of Keith Jackson on ABC as we all tuned in to watch the Rose Bowl and start the new year off right. Now I’m only 24 so my earliest and favorite Rose Bowl memory has to be when Texas faced off against USC in 2006. Vince Young made his immortal run to the end zone on fourth down to give Texas the win. Coincidently it was also Jackson’s last time calling the Rose Bowl.

Central Florida will take on the LSU Tigers in a Fiesta Bowl showdown on New Year’s Day. The Knights come into this match, feeling very bitter, having been left out of the Playoff, even after going undefeated for the second consecutive season. LSU has something to play for as well. The Tigers are seeking their first 10-win season since 2013.

I knew there was a bowl game that I forgot about, it used to be known as the Tangerine Bowl, which was turned into the Florida Citrus Bowl in 1983. WOW !!!!…Where was I ?? Because I clearly remember the Capital One Bowl from 2001 until 2014, and then it was CompUSA, Ourhouse.com, and then it was sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings a couple of years ago. Overton’s sponsored the game in 2018, now it is sponsored by VRBO, a vacation rental marketplace and will be hereby known as (for now) the VRBO Citrus Bowl. And out of all of the non-College Football Playoff bowl games, this game has the highest payout per team at $4.25 million. That’s more money for the Big Ten and Southeast Conferences, Now that we got the identifications out of the way, it’s time to discuss this game.
