In this episode we explore the world of Junior College Basketball. I think it’s slightly misunderstood and is an important area in the collegiate basketball landscape. Joining me are two legendary Minnesota coaches that were both successful coaches in the JUCO world. Jay Pivec has over 600 wins and a good majority of those came from his time as head coach at Minneapolis Community College. Jay was recognized as national junior college coach of the year in 2009 and was inducted into the national junior college hall of fame in 2010. And the second guest- Ron Larson just retired as the head coach at Anoka-Ramsey Community College. Ron amassed over 700 wins as coach at ARCC and St. Francis high school and is in the Minnesota Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame.
Ron and Jay explain the differences in the three divisions of JUCO basketball, where most players that go the JUCO route play at the next level and why JUCO basketball is important. This episode is a must listen for those wanting to learn more about junior college basketball or are looking to play at that level.
