Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 104: Quade Green Transfers + Ben Howland


The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast is back with a BIG-TIME guest, Mississippi State coach Ben Howland. Howland leads the 18th ranked team in the country as they get set to face Cincinnati this weekend. He and Aaron talk about a ton of topics, ranging from coaching Russell Westbrook to this year’s team.
But first Aaron discusses the biggest stories in college basketball, starting with:
Quade Green Elects to Transfer: The big news in college hoops is the decision of Quade Green to leave Kentucky. No one should be surprised, but Aaron explains why this is continuing a bad trend for Kentucky. Why is it that they can’t seem to keep a quality player past his freshman season? Is there anything Calipari can do to change that? The answer isn’t as simple as you think.
Trouble at Villanova: Next up, Aaron discusses another back-up point guard with big-time problems, Villanova’s Jahvon Quinerly. Quinerly is a McDonald’s All-American who can’t seem to find the court.  He sent out a cryptic Instagram message following Villanova’s loss to Penn on Tuesday night. Aaron gives inside information on Quinerly’s recruitment and why he doesn’t blame the kid for being frustrated. Also, Aaron compares Jay Wright’s system of going with veterans over talented freshman with John Calipari’s system of spotlighting freshmen.
Next Aaron welcomes a special guest, as Ben Howland joins the show.
Coach Howland’s Coaching Journety: Coach Howland’s first job in coaching, which involved guarding John Stockton every day in practice, and what it was like to coach Russell Westbrook at UCLA. Then he discusses this year’s Mississippi State team and why the SEC has gotten so good, so quick in basketball. Finally, he wraps with a couple incredible Westbrook stories.
