    Does every Week in college basketball have a name?

    So far ESPN has given us:

    Tip-off Week
    Feast Week
    V Week
    School Spirit Week
    Rivalry Week

    and by the end of the year we'll have:
    Judgment [sic] Week
    Championship Week

    I think I'm missing a couple Weeks in there too. How did we ever get by not konwing which Week it is?

    Since the first and second round of the NCAA tourney is around Easter, do you think they'd dare call it "Holy Week"?

    That would only work when which Easter falls during the Tournament.

    Otherwise, it wouldn't be the first time the name of a Catholic ritual was appropriated for use in sports.

    Bracketbusters week? Or is that just a weekend?

    Heh, ya, I've thought the exact same thing. It is pretty ridiculous. On top of that, there's usually a sponsor for each week:

    Feast Week Presented by Lowe’s
    Rivalry Week Presented by Cisco
    Holiday Hoops Presented by Kay Jewelers
    O’Reilly ESPNU BracketBusters
    Championship Week Presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods

    Other tourney/event sponsors:

    Pizza Hut BIG EAST/SEC Invitational
    O’Reilly ESPNU Puerto Rico Tip-Off and Anaheim Classic
    Old Spice Classic
    2K Sports Coaches vs. Cancer Classic
    EA Sports Maui Invitational
    Big Ten/ACC Challenge Presented by Dish Network
    Dick’s Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off
    O’Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic
    O’Reilly Auto Parts All-College Classic
    MasterCard NIT

    By the way, "judgment" is a correct spelling. "Judgement" is the British way...at least, as far as I know...

    Actually, Easter does fall during the tourney this year - March 23, which is the date of 2nd round games for the Friday-Sunday pods (which include the RBC Center, BTW).

    I was trying to come up with other "joke" names, but they were all kinda "weak"

    I know, and it's for the same reason why we use "canceled" and they use "cancelled." The [sic] was more an indication that *is* the spelling espn uses.

    I thought there was also Challenge Week, when all the newfangled interconference Challenges took place (right after Feast Week), but wasn't certain.

    Didn't the Week before School Spirit Week have a name too? Espn was touting that a lot of ranked teams were playing each other.

    How about patsy week for the week before conference play starts?

    Yes, and I thought that having NCSU and Va Tech play during rivalry week was a stretch. Has Thug U even been in the conference long enough to be considered the rival of anyone (other than being the rival of fair-play)?
