CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast
CBS Sports’ official college basketball podcast is the most entertaining and informative of its kind. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander bring the sport into your ears three times per week with commentary, reporting, insider information and statistical analysis throughout college basketball all year long.
The UNC-Duke preview you crave, plus Kentucky's worrisome injury and VCU as the cream of the A-10
The greatest rivalry in sports renews on Wednesday night, so Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander prep you for what to expect in Durham. But first, the duo opens on Indiana hitting a new low -- but offering hope for Hoosier fans. Then it's time to, finally, talk some VCU (12:00) and A-10. Meanwhile, Kentucky (20:00) got an easy win but also bad news on Tuesday: Reid Travis has a sprained right knee. How long will he be out, and is UK's SEC title chance at risk: The UNC-Duke chatter, which is wide-ranging and features fun tangents, starts at 24:30.
Kentucky's win over Tennessee doesn't mean the Vols were overrated, and the same is true of Gonzaga now
Matt Norlander attended Tennessee-Kentucky on Saturday, then wound up stuck at the Indianapolis airport for more than seven hours. So this is the first podcast in our history to record from an airport. The opening starts with that, and of course, UK over UT. From there, Gary Parrish explains why he doesn't have Duke No. 1 or Kentucky ahead of Michigan in his Top 25 and 1 (14:00). Gonzaga is also worth discussion in light of its winning streak (20:30). The Big 12 race is now entering its endgame (28:00), and since we're talking Big 12, Chris Beard's freakout over a walk-on dunking in a blowout (36:15) needs discussing. That's not all. The guys touch on two wild buzzer-beaters and Chris Clemons -- Fighting Camel! -- reaching 3,000 points (40:00) before wrapping with some of the games to watch Monday and Tuesday.
A lovingly fun Valentine's Day episode that previews what's sure to be a sweet weekend in college hoops
We love our listeners, and so that's why we've made sure to start this Valentine's Day episode with a little love chatter at the top before getting to the game of the weekend (6:00): Tennessee-Kentucky. Then, it's on to Iowa State and Kansas State (17:00) in the biggest game in the Big 12 this weekend. We also touch on Maryland-Michigan (25:05) before wrapping with thoughts around the sport and games to keep an eye on. Also, Norlander's got a weird theory on why the Big 12 is like Avengers: Infinity War.
