Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 105: The Return of Nevada Coach Eric Musselman

It’s another lively edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast.  Aaron recaps a wild weekend in college basketball before Nevada’s Muss Bus returns to the show.
Why Tennessee Should be the No. 1 team in the country right now: While Kansas is No. 1, Aaron makes the case for a team Kansas beat — Tennessee. The Vols lost in overtime against the Jayhawks, in a game they dominated before their best player Grant Williams fouled out. After beating Gonzaga and dominating Memphis the last two weeks, why shouldn’t the Vols be No. 1?
Why Kentucky vs. North Carolina is HUGE: Next, Aaron discusses big wins this weekend for Kentucky and North Carolina. Aaron explains why he thinks UK is finally starting to turn a corner by figuring out who they can “go to war with,” while North Carolina is coming off an impressive win against Gonzaga at home (where Gonzaga wasn’t close to 100 percent). Aaron then asks: Is this weekend’s UNC-Kentucky game the one that will define both team’s seasons?
Next up, it’s the return of one of our favorite guests as Nevada coach Eric Musselman joins the show. Among the many topics they discuss include:
Nevada’s rise into the Top 10: Coach Muss talks about his current team, which is ranked No. 7 in the country. How did he build this team? What characteristics did he look for in his players? And why he always believed Year 4 (this season) was the one the Wolf Pack would break through. He and Aaron also discuss how analytics have sometimes hurt college basketball and what his Nevada team needs to work on to get better throughout this season.
