With the NCAA announcing Tuesday that it will no longer be using the RPI, big changes are in store for how NCAA tournament teams are evaluated. Kevin Pauga of KPISports.net joined Rob Dauster on Tuesday’s edition of the podcast to discuss the change and the NCAA Evaluation Tool (NET) that will now be used.
I brought Zach Osterman of the Indy Star onto the podcast today to discuss all things Indiana.
Are the Hoosiers in trouble? Is Tom Crean in trouble? How does a team go from beating Kansas and North Carolina to seemingly being incapable of running offense without turning the ball over?
I also put together an in-depth read on the subject as well.
On today’s podcast we talked about Virginia and Oregon landing critical wins this week, why Tom Crean appears to be the victim of expectation thanks to his two early-season wins and we break down all six of the major conferences at this point in the season.
On today’s podcast, ESPN broadcaster and former Arizona Wildcat Miles Simon came on the pod to chat about how he went from being a college basketball coach to a member of the media and what “the AAU problem” in the country is overblown, as well as taking a chance to go through and break down some of the biggest story lines and best players on the west coast.
In the latest episode of the NBCSports.com College Basketball Talk podcast, I was joined by my former colleague Raphielle Johnson to discuss everything from Kentucky-UCLA to Syracuse-UConn to who deserves to be the Player of the Year after the first month of the season.
With the change to the NCAA deadline for underclassmen to withdraw from the NBA Draft moving from mid-April to May 25, college programs and fan bases across the country anxiously awaited Wednesday night’s deadline for news on players still going through the decision-making process.
With the dust having settled Thursday morning, the NBC Sports College Basketball Talk crew (Rob Dauster, Raphielle Johnson and Scott Phillips) got together to discuss the winners and losers. Among those discussed are Oregon, four Big Ten teams (Indiana, Maryland, Purdue and Wisconsin), and USC. It should be noted that Maryland was discussed before news of Justin Jackson’s commitment broke, so their front court looks a little different due to that.
We also touched on our updates to the Top 25, with the Boilermakers making a move up in the rankings, and Marcus Lee’s decision to transfer from Kentucky. As always, you can either click “play” in the Soundcloud player below or listen via iTunes or the Stitcher app. Thanks for listening!
