Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 225: Louisville Mess + Kentucky Struggles + Duke the Title Favorite?

We’re now a month away from Selection Sunday and the drama is heating up across college basketball. Aaron Torres is joined by his old buddy Nick Coffey to discuss it all. Here is a rundown of today’s show:

Maryland wins at Michigan State: In what was the single biggest win of the weekend, Maryland went to Michigan State and picked up a victory, cementing their spot in the national title conversation. Aaron explains why the win showed both Maryland’s talent, but also the shortcomings which might cost them come March.

A look at Louisville, Kentucky and Duke with Nick Coffey: Aaron’s old buddy Nick Coffey joins the show to discuss all the rest of the weekend in college hoops. The guys break down a second straight Louisville loss and ask the question: Even with a solid record and second place spot in the ACC, do they really have the goods to win it all? Also, they talk about Kentucky struggling with another inferior opponent and if it may cost them, and one of the guys believes that Duke might just be the favorite to win it all.

Finally Aaron wraps with “Shoutout of the Day,” discussing a pair of highly paid coaches going in two different directions: Buzz Williams at Texas A&M and Tom Crean at Georgia.

    Kentucky’s prospects for a title this year, while possible, seem unlikely. My fall back position this year, as most years, is “anybody but Duke.” If Duke gets a good draw, as usual, they will be a very tough out.

    St K is already guaranteed the top 2 seed and thus further guaranteed the weakest #1, seed is in their bracket, and as always will playing 2 games, an easy drive, without leaving NC.
    You can bet your house that a slip by any one of the top 4 and Duke will jump into a # 1 seed. Then instead of the toughest 2-3-4 that should be seeded In the bracket with the lowest #1, the selection committee will disregard that to make sure Duke has an easy road, to the FF.
