It’s time again to look back at the past month and see what just happened. All through the eyes of the photo machines. Here are your best pictures from college basketball in 2013’s inaugural month. The serious, seriously funny, confusing, animalistic and horrifying (looking at you, Minnesota bunny).

Enjoy, and feel free to share it wherever you may on social media.
