College basketball is back in full swing after the Christmas break. Here’s a look at how each game involving a Top 25 team will play out this week.

The Christmas holiday has come and gone, meaning college basketball is about to kick into high gear. The last few days of non-conference play are upon us and most leagues are set to begin conference play in full force, setting the stage for a dramatic two-month run to get ready for the NCAA Tournament.

There wasn’t a ton of drama in last week’s action, which led to minimal movement in the Week 8 AP Top 25 poll. Let’s take a look at predictions for each Top 25 game on the schedule for this coming week.
