In the latest episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, Aaron talks all things SEC and college hoops with Jon Rothstein. The CBS college basketball insider picked Tennessee as the top team in the SEC heading into the season and he does not back down from his selection as the two talk SEC hoops.
Before Rothstein joins the program, Aaron discusses Duke’s first game in the Bahamas. Highlights:
The Emergence of Zion Williamson: While R.J. Barrett led the way, Zion Williamson emerged as the star of the Blue Devils on Wednesday. Aaron explains how Williamson exceeded expectations and showed a more well-rounded game than anyone could have expected.
Duke’s Concerns: What can go wrong for Duke? Will depth plague this team? Do they have a second point guard behind Tre Jones? Aaron also explains why Marques Bolden continues to struggle.
Next, Aaron welcomes CBS Sports college basketball insider Jon Rothstein to the show. The pair discuss:
How Rothstein became a College Basketball Insider: Rothstein explains his winding road to where he is today, as one of the pre-eminent insiders in the sport. Why it takes a decade to make an overnight success story, and how one game created his college basketball fandom — and nearly ruined his parents’ marriage.
His thoughts on the SEC: Rothstein explains in great detail why he has Tennessee atop the conference. He also explains why he still believes Kentucky is capable of winning a national championship. Also, is this the best the SEC has ever been?
Top College Basketball Storylines: Rothstein wraps by discussing an unsettled Big East, why Nevada is so fascinating and what to expect from UConn in the first year of the Dan Hurley era. Also, why he refuses to give out New York City restaurant recommendations to Aaron!
