Manage episode 289176378 series 2507427
On today's episode, with tonight's National Championship matchup between Gonzaga and Baylor looming, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the importance of transfers in college basketball. Gonzaga has been a destination location for transfers for years, while the Bears are led by Davion Mitchell, one of the most highly sought after transfer players of the past few years. In short, whoever wins during 'transfer season' is sure to be a serious threat when the real games are played. With that mind, keep an eye out on the Maryland Terrapins next season. You heard it here first. Later, ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas swings by to break down the final sequence that led to Jalen Suggs' buzzer-beating game-winner over UCLA, discuss why he believes Gonzaga-UCLA was best college basketball game he's seen since Duke-Kentucky in 1992, explain why Gonzaga's Drew Timme could be the key to the national title game against Baylor, tell us why it would be really hard not to call this 2021 Gonzaga squad one of the greatest teams of all-time if they're able to finish out this perfect season with a national title, talk about why the current culture shift taking place in college basketball that has blue bloods scrambling a bit doesn't necessarily mean that other mid-majors can easily duplicate Gonzaga's success, dispel the notion that one-and-done players don't win in the NCAA Tournament, and much more!
