Casual fans of the college game will find a lot to like, but players with a lot of sports game experience may notice some skimpiness in the modes of play. The presentation is, for the most part, amazing. Not only do the players and arenas look good, but the game boasts many details such as celebration animations after big scores and the reflection of the cheerleaders in the polished wood floors. There is some in-game advertising and overbearing announcers, but more often than not, the game is beautiful.

Unfortunately, the same level of TLC wasn't carried through to the gameplay. While the controls are relatively easy to pick up, some of the on-court action feels sloppy, including less than intelligent play by the computer-controlled teammates and overactive foul detection that makes steals and blocks very difficult to pull off. Team practice might help, but there is no practice mode. The game's online support includes play against human opponents and a link to ESPN's scores and talk.
