With Kentucky falling to Utah, it was a late night for college hoops fans, but Aaron Torres is up early to recap it all on today’s Aaron Torres Podcast. In addition to talking all things college hoops, he is also joined by Auburn coach Bruce Pearl in his debut on the show! Here is a quick rundown:
Kentucky Loses to Utah in an Awful Night for the SEC: Aaron opens the show by talking about Kentucky’s late night loss to Utah (4:00). He explains why Kentucky simply isn’t good enough offensively to play so poorly on defense, then discusses parallels between last season following the loss to Seton Hall, and explains why he does believe this is “fixable” for the Wildcats. Then he talks about another disappointing night in the SEC, including a loss for Tennessee, which like Kentucky, seems to be out of sorts (19:00). Are Auburn and Arkansas the two best bets in this league? Is anyone actually good? Aaron has the answers.
Bruce Pearl Joins the Show: Next Up, Aaron is joined by Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl (30:00), who makes his debut on the show. Pearl talks about being the last undefeated team in Power 5, and why he still feels like there are a lot of questions about his team, and this league overall. He also discusses the rebuild of the program overall, the impact of Charles Barkely and answers the question: Does he really have a street named after him in Indiana? It’s a great interview and one any college hoops fan will love!
