It’s a jam-packed Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as Aaron has a full recap of the NBA Draft deadline and winners and losers — and is then joined by Nevada coach Eric Musselman, a coach whose team will begin the season ranked No. 1. Starting with the draft deadline, Aaron breaks it all down, including:
What P.J. Washington’s Return means for Kentucky: Aaron calls Washington’s return the final piece of the puzzle for the Wildcats, and a move that makes them a bonafide national title contender. He also explains why the Wildcats have no true weakness heading into 2019, and should be considered a title favorite. Also, Aaron dives into Reid Travis and why Kentucky doesn’t necessarily need him.
How is Nevada a Top Five Team? Before welcoming on Coach Muss, Aaron shares why he has them in the Top 5. He breaks down their roster and explains why they are a title contender, even though they play in the Mountain West..
Why Duke is Ranked so Low: Most college basketball pundits believe Duke is one of the most talented teams in the country. Torres isn’t buying the combination of Zion Williamson, R.J. Barrett and Cam Reddish.
