Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 124: Zion Williamson, Reid Travis and Furman coach Bob Richey

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.

    Sounds like a great show . Juicy topics here can’t wait to hear bout Zion , Travis & furmans coach on getting an at large bid. That’s always been a fascinating aspect of college hoops to me cuz it sends stuff into an u expected frenzy sometimes

    I’m glad he’s not out for the season but Zion should shut it down, as a Kentucky fan I’m firmly for this and he has zero risk of reinjury

    Their win at Nova is a better win than probably 9-10 SEC teams have. That said they don’t face the same quality of teams night in and night out as even the 9-10th place SEC team do. Is an interesting debate every year but I do hope they put more teams like Furman and Utah State in this year. Watched Utah St last night and their team and fans are awesome. Really play together, at one point late in game had 20 assist on 24 baskets. After the game they high five fans running all the way around the court, coach to. Fans stayed and were rowdy the entire game. They are a young team with an NBA caliber big man in the middle.
