Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 134: Recapping the First Weekend of the NCAA Tournament


The first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is in the books — and oh what a weekend it was, as 68 teams are now down to just 16. Relive it all with an Aaron Torres Sports Podcast taped immediately following Sunday night’s action. After 96 straight hours of basketball, Aaron is here to discuss the entire weekend, including:

All the Top Seeds Advance: Aaron opens the show by discussing the biggest topic of the weekend — we have an NCAA Tournament where all the best teams advanced. Kentucky, Duke, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia and more are onto the second weekend and Aaron says this is great for the sport. He also explains that while everyone claims to love the upsets, we should be rooting for more tournaments like this one.

Duke’s Wild Win over UCF: Next Aaron hits on the most controversial finish of the weekend, which came in the Duke-Central Florida game. Aaron recaps it all and says you shouldn’t blame the refs for Duke’s win. At the same time, is this game further proof that Duke won’t actually win the title? Aaron thinks so.

Big Victories for Tennessee and Kentucky: Finally, Aaron wraps by talking about the wild victories that Tennessee and Kentucky got this weekend. He discusses Admiral Schofield deciding to bench himself – and why that’s further proof of what makes this team special. Speaking of “special” how about Tyler Herro’s defensive effort against Fletcher Magee?? Aaron says that is a full credit to John Calipari, who stuck with Herro through the tough times.

    So he’s going to make excuses for the THREE no calls a the end of the Duke game and sing the praises of Admiral Scholfield. Anything on how Grant Williams DOESN’T flop??

    HARD PASS

    Yeah. Hard pass. Zion was a bull in a china shop all game long. UCF got jobbed.

    And UT isn’t all that special. If UT loses, Barnes gets the heat for one of the all time most boneheaded moves. They’re lucky. Blew a 25 point lead and escaped.

      Rick Barnes will always be the dude who lost in the second round when he had Kevin Durant on his team.
