In this episode, Raphielle Johnson and I chat about a wild weekend in college basketball, where Gonzaga suffered its first loss of the season, UCLA picked up a huge win over Arizona, and Kentucky took control of the SEC with a win over Florida.
Specifically, I discuss why I'm still buying Gonzaga as one of the favorites to get to the Final Four, how Malik Monk impressed me with versatility this weekend, Iowa State and Monte Morris have been really rolling recently, how Jeffrey Carroll is the most improved player in all of college basketball, how Maryland is tailspinning, how we need to stop talking about Clemson, start talking about Providence and Minnesota, and whether or not North Carolina might be the best team in college hoops. Also, I make Raph answer the most important question in all of college basketball: is Duke back?
