Welcome to Talking Hoops with Ted Sarandis. The Final Four is in front of us, which means there are games left, but also other activity going on.
In this edition, we first talk the coaching carousel, including the interesting moves made in the West Coast Conference thus far and what it means for the current state of the conference. We move into transfers, with news that the transfer wire is already over 250 players long and sure to expand, headed by graduate transfers. There are a few graduate transfers who will be of special interest, and we touch on them briefly.
We also touch on early entrants to the NBA Draft, impacted by a change in when players can withdraw from the draft. Many players are throwing their names in, and many more will follow, but there are only 60 spots in the two rounds for all of these players. Will those who don’t even get an invite to the pre-draft combine come back to school?
Finally, we look at the three remaining games in the NCAA Tournament, with one team being a clear favorite and both games being a rematch of a regular season meeting. Also, we mention College Basketball Tonight, airing on AM 710 WOR in New York Sunday live at the Final Four from Radio Row in Houston from 5-7 p.m. Eastern and streamed on Hoopville. We look forward to having some great coaches as guests on the program.
