The Final Four is set after a truly unpredictable Elite Eight. Aaron Torres is here to break down a Final Four no one could see coming. Aaron talks about all four wild Elite Eight games, discussing the following topics:
Why Duke’s Loss Was Inevitable: Aaron opens the show by discussing Duke’s loss to Michigan State in the Elite Eight. Aaron says that Duke was flawed all season, and all it took was the right team, on the right day to knock them off. Also, Aaron heaps praise on Michigan State, who he calls “the mentally toughest team in college basketball this season.” He also explains why he thought Cassius Winston was the National Player of the Year for most of the season.
Kentucky Comes Up Short Against Auburn: Aaron reacts to Kentucky’s stunning loss to Auburn. Unlike the Duke game, where Duke played well but lost, Kentucky gave the game away against Auburn. Aaron explains how a small stretch in the first half defined the game, and how missed free throws cost the Wildcats. Aaron then breaks down Auburn and why they’ve had success, and wraps by explaining why he doesn’t believe Tyler Herro or Ashton Hagans are “one and done” players.
Saturday’s Elite Eight Games: Saturday night was filled with just as many fireworks. Aaron talks about everything that had to go wrong for Purdue to lose, but also wonders if it is karma coming full circle for Virginia. Also, Aaron explains why he loves Texas Tech, and why Chris Beard might just be the best coach in college basketball right now.
