On today’s show, Brad and Kevin get back into the land of deep dives with in-depth breakdowns on Ohio State (22:50-1:04:15) and Memphis (1:04:25-1:38:00). OSU brings back a superstar in Kaleb Wesson, lots of role players, and adds three top-50 recruits. Can Chris Holtmann put the pieces together and unlock the potential of this club to be among the nation’s elite?
And since we’re talking potential, perhaps no club in college basketball has more upside than Memphis in year two under Penny Hardaway. We break down exactly what this team will look like, some of the ways Penny can maximize the talents of his loaded roster, and what reasonable expectations are for a team unlike anything we’ve really seen in the one-and-done era for a coach not named John Calipari or Mike Krzyzewski.
They also touch on the International trips, the Pan-Am games, Yoeli Childs’ suspension, and Brandon Williams’ injury off the top.
