It’s a MASSIVE edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron discusses all the big stories in college basketball, from Zion Williamson to Reid Travis and everything in-between. He is also joined by Furman head coach Bob Richey to talk about what it’s like to be a mid-major team battling to earn an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament.
Here is a rundown of the day’s show:
Why Zion Williamson Shouldn’t Shut it Down: It’s all anyone in college basketball is talking about! After Zion Williamson went down with a knee injury — should he throw in the towel? Aaron explains why that’s a bad idea. Wednesday night proved that Duke can’t win a title without Zion, and did it put UNC in the conversation for a No. 1 seed?
Reid Travis’ Injury: What does it mean for Kentucky? Aaron explains why if such a thing was going to happen, this isn’t the worst time.
Furman coach Bob Richey: Next up, Aaron is joined by Furman head coach Bob Richey. Last episode Aaron and Nick Coffey debated whether small, mid-majors should actually be in consideration for at-large bids, and Coach Richey tells you how tough the struggle actually is. He describes scheduling and how the computers are held against small schools. Furman is currently 22-5 and won at Villanova – yet might just get left out of the Big Dance. Is it fair? Coach Richey explains why the answer is no.
