Brad and Kevin continue their journey through the nation’s most interesting teams with in-depth breakdowns of Auburn (15:20-50:00) and Marquette (50:50-1:33:30) on today’s show. First, they break down an Auburn team that came a Kyle Guy prayer from the national title game, but has significant holes to fill in the backcourt. The guys debate whether J’Von McCormick can be a high-level lead guard, Isaac Okoro’s upside, and just how good this defense can be.
Then, they take a look at Marquette, as the Golden Eagles make the transition from the shooting that the Hauser brothers provided to a squad that surrounds Markus Howard with size and athleticism. They break down whether playing Jayce Johnson and Theo John at the same time can work, if there’s enough shooting for Howard, and who this team’s second best player is.
