AJ Burgett is a professional basketball player who currently plays for Etzella in Luxembourg. Collegiately he played for the University of Notre Dame from 2012-2016. He talks about growing up in Avon, Indiana, how he got into basketball, playing AAU, his great career at Avon High School, his recruiting process, and why he chose Notre Dame. AJ describes what it was like to play for Mike Brey, getting his body ready for college basketball, playing in the Big East and ACC, highlights which include an ACC Tournament Championship and back-to-back Elite Eight appearances, and some injuries he faced. He details his time away from basketball after college, interning for Notre Dame, his role in the Matt Farrell/Bo Farrell reunion, and re-discovering his love for basketball while working games at IU. AJ then talks about the process to get overseas, playing for several teams in Europe, his current team Etzella, and how well he has been playing as a professional.
In this edition of Hoosier Storytime, we get the inside scoop on one of the greatest teams in IU basketball history from one of the greatest examples of player development: Brian Evans. Brian played on the last few IU teams that were truly at the epicenter of college basketball. He was a redshirt on the 1992 Final Four team and a key rotation piece on the 1993 Elite Eight team that many people think would have won it all were it not for Alan Henderson's knee injury. We talk at length about what it was like playing with so many great players like Henderson, Calbert Cheaney, Greg Graham, Damon Bailey, etc.Plus: why Brian wanted to kick the Fab 5's ass so badly, who from those early 90s teams would win in a shooting contest, and whether or not he felt threatened by Bob Knight's recruitment of Ivan Renko (or Bob Knight's offseason threats that there might not be a spot for Evans on the next year's team).We also discuss player development in general, the shooting woes of the current program, and what it was like popping his shoulder back into place on the court.All of that and much more in this edition of Hoosier Storytime.Our private IU basketball discussion community: http://assemblycall.com/communityPlaybook Products: http://assemblycall.com/pp
Guest: Richard Pitino, University of New Mexico Head Coach In this week's coaching conversation, University of New Mexico head coach Richard Pitino joins the podcast to discuss coaching transitions and program building. Coach Pitinio is the head coach of the University of New Mexico. He has previously been head coach at Minnesota and at Florida International University. Before that, he was an assistant under his father Rick Pitino for two seasons at Louisville. He also worked as an assistant coach for Billy Donovan of Florida for two seasons. He has been a part of seven NCAA Tournaments, including two as a head coach. He has also been a part of three Elite Eight runs and one Final Four berth as an assistant. He comes to UNM after an eight-year stint at the University of Minnesota, where he went 141-123 with two NCAA Tournament berths and an NIT Championship. His first season at the helm of the Golden Gophers saw Minnesota go 25-13, setting a school record for wins as Minnesota won the second NIT Championship in school history. At Florida International, Pitino led the program to its first winning season in 12 years and a 10 win improvement from the previous year. Overall at Minnesota, Pitino picked up 19 wins over ranked opponents, including five top-10 opponents. Daniel Oturu in 2020 was selected in the second round of the NBA Draft by Minnesota, becoming the first Golden Gopher to be drafted into the NBA in 16 years. Additionally, five players were drafted into the NBA G League. Pitino’s success isn’t just as a head coach, as he has been a part of several deep NCAA Tournament runs as an assistant and as an associate head coach. He spent two separate stints at Louisville coaching alongside his Hall of Fame father Rick Pitino. In 2011-12 as associate head coach, the Cardinals went 30-10, advancing all the way to the Final Four. That team along the way scored a 59-56 win in Portland over New Mexico in the NCAA Tournament, paving the way for the Cardinals to make it to the Sweet 16. From there, Louisville defeated No. 5 Michigan State and No. 25 Florida before losing in the Final Four to No. 1 Kentucky. Between Louisville stops, Pitino spent two seasons at Florida coaching under Billy Donovan. In his first season with Florida, the Gators went 21-13 overall, making it to the NCAA Tournament as a 10-seed where they would lose 99-92 in double overtime to BYU. That team climbed as high as No. 10 in the polls. The following season in 2009-10, Florida won the SEC regular season championship and went 29-8 overall, advancing the Elite Eight, losing to a Cinderella Butler squad 74-71 in overtime. Pitino has also had assistant coaching stops at Duquesne, Northeastern and the College of Charleston.

Eric Musselman, a friend and a great coach tells his story of career growth including his stint in Sacramento. He's now found his niche in the collegiate world and done it with resounding success taking the Arkansas Razorbacks to the Elite Eight this year and just finalized a new deal with the University. He's humble, he's emotional and he's sincere. It's a refreshing conversation given his history in the NBA and his progression through the collegiate ranks.

The Arkansas men's basketball team had a historic season—the likes Hog fans hadn't seen since its hay day in the 90s—and it was one to remember. Eric Musselman's second season with the Razorbacks had it all: tough losses, a team gut check, come from behind victories, historic runs, the highest seeded NCAA bid in over 20 years and an Elite Eight appearance. We sat down with Coach Muss to talk about the amazing season and what his vision for his team is moving forward.
On today's episode of Barstool Bench Mob, the guys recap the Elite Eight and start with the shocker of the round in the East Region (02:42) where Mick, Hep, and the 11-seed UCLA Bruins took down 1-seed Michigan in a stunning upset. The loss of Isaiah Livers finally came back to bite the Wolverines. Is UCLA the luckiest team in the country? Or do they just have the power of Hep on their side? Can the Bruins keep the run alive and take down Goliath in the Final Four? From shocker to blowout, we go to the West Region (170:09) where the Gonzaga Bulldogs look truly unstoppable. Drew Timme eviscerated NBA top prospect Evan Mobley and the Trojans. Was this the most impressive effort all season from the Bulldogs? Next, we cover the Midwest Region (26:30) where Rico's Houston Cougars are heading to their first Final Four since the Phi Slama Jama days. The Cinderella run for Oregon State comes to an end. Can Houston keep up with Baylor? They took down the 15, 10, 11, and 12 seeds in their region but now get a huge test in 1-seeded Baylor. Jake thinks the Cougars have a shot. And lastly we move over to the South Region (37:33) where the other tournament favorite, Baylor, continued their march towards a date with Gonzaga. Arkansas had an unbelievable season led by the Muss Bus. Could the Razorbacks return all of their players and make another run at it next season? Meanwhile, the Bears look destined to meet the Zags in the Championship. Who exactly is Baylor's best player? We wrap things up with an update on the Women's Tournament (54:52). Monday's game of the night was on the women's side. The UConn-Baylor game was electric but ended with a controversial no-call. Should Texas take a look at Baylor coach Kim Mulkey? Rico thinks so. For UConn, it's all about Paige Bueckers as usual. Elsewhere, Stanford, South Carolina, and Arizona fill out the rest of the Final Four.
The podcast must have some sort of karmic power. Because first it was Baylor, and now it’s Mick Cronin and UCLA. The Bruins upset Michigan, and in the process locked up the most upset-riddled tournament in history. Gonzaga casually destroyed USC to continue their run toward history. Parrish and Norlander look back on Tuesday night’s regional finals, setting the table for Saturday’s Final Four. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Houston beat Oregon State. Baylor beat Arkansas. Half the Final Four is set, and we have you covered with overnight reaction to Monday's regional semifinals. Baylor. Terry MF'in Teagle. Bill Henderson. Vinnie Johnson. LaceDarius Dunn. You know all the names. Back in the Final Four for the first time in 71 years. As Norlander alludes to on the podcast, here is his column from Lucas Oil Stadium on Kelvin Sampson's late-stage revival and return to the Final Four after 19 years since his first trip there. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/how-kelvin-sampson-repaired-his-career-at-houston-and-resurrected-the-cougars-who-are-back-in-the-final-four/ Learn more about your ad choices.

On today’s Dan Patrick Show, DP and the guys are back to recap the weekend that was in sports. NBC Sports’ Chris Simms joined the show to talk about the switch up in draft order and what that could mean for some teams, including the futures of their current quarterbacks. As the Elite Eight begins this evening,, ESPN college basketball analyst Seth Greenberg hopped on the show and broke down Oregon State's Cinderella run thus far, while Florida State was the most shocking exit. And Drew Brees joined Dan to talk about his new endeavor as an analyst for NBC Sports and life after retirement. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
Subscribe, Rate & Review Straight Fire w/ Jason McIntyre HERE.... https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/straight-fire-with-jason-mcintyre/id1523353907 On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by sharing his thoughts on the big buyout acquisitions over the weekend in the NBA - LaMarcus Aldridge to the Brooklyn Nets and Andre Drummond to the Los Angeles Lakers. The Nets had already picked up Blake Griffin a few weeks ago. But, quite frankly, Drummond should have more of an impact with the Lakers than Aldridge and Griffin will combined with the Nets because at least he has a defined role. Aldridge, Griffin and Jeff Green all do the same things at this point in their careers so it's hard to determine which guy will get meaningful playing time in the postseason. On the NFL front, the San Francisco 49ers made a blockbuster trade on Friday to move up to #3 in the NFL Draft presumably to land their quarterback of the future. Naturally, many expected that would mean that incumbent starter Jimmy Garoppolo is on the trade block. Not so fast, my friend. Recent history tells us that NFL teams prefer to let their rookie quarterbacks sit on the bench for at least a few games before throwing them into the fire, especially in cases where said rookie had limited experience in college; NDSU's Trey Lance and Ohio State's Justin Fields have less than 20 collegiate starts combined. Translation - Jimmy G ain't going nowhere. Finally, Jason closes the show with a very special Elite Eight edition of the Best Bet.

On today's episode of Barstool Bench Mob, the guys recap an action-packed Sweet 16 that featured some blowouts, three 1-seeds advancing, and one stunning upset. In the West Region (03:13), we had two blowouts with Gonzaga and USC set to meet in the Elite Eight. Can anybody stop the Bulldogs and if so, is it Evan Mobley and the Trojans? Is this the toughest matchup the Zags will have faced all season? Marty and Rico both believe in the Trojans chances for an upset. In the East Region (11:48) we saw the major upset of the weekend with UCLA outlasting Alabama in overtime. The Crimson Tide's struggles at the foul line probably cost them the game and the Bench Mob some money. Mick Cronin's squad is heading to the Elite Eight in a matchup against 1-seed Michigan. The Wolverines smoked Florida State and are poised for another trip to the Final Four. Is Michigan the most underrated team left in the field? In the Midwest Region (33:33), the Beavers continue their Cinderella run after beating Loyola-Chicago in an absolute rock fight. Oregon State's defense has helped propel them to an unlikely Elite Eight matchup against Houston on Monday. The Cougars were able to figure out the Syracuse zone and get past the Orange. Do Marty and Jake finally believe in Houston despite only beating double-digit seeds so far? Over to the South Region (46:38) where the 1-seed Baylor Bears and 3-seed Arkansas Razorbacks will meet in an electric Elite Eight game Monday night. Arkansas barely survived after Max Abmas' last-second shot just missed. Jared Butler struggled against Villanova but the Bears overcame a 7-point halftime deficit to advance. Do the Razorbacks have the firepower to stay with Baylor? And we also have an Elite Eight set in the Women's Tournament (01:01:41) with three 1-seeds headlining the field including Paige Bueckers and UConn. And we wrap things up discussing Indiana's hiring of Mike Woodson (01:05:26). Don't forget to subscribe, rate, and review to Barstool Bench Mob and follow us on Twitter and Instagram @stoolbenchmob
On today's Sweet 16 preview of Barstool Bench Mob, we kick things off with the Saturday slate. 8-seed Loyola-Chicago matches up against 12-seed Oregon State (03:55). Are the Ramblers the favorite to come out of the region? Next up, Baylor faces Villanova and Rico and Marty think the Bears run away with it and move on to the Elite Eight (09:19). Do the Wildcats have a shot without Collin Gillespie? The winner of that game will meet the winner of Arkansas and the Cinderella of the tournament, Oral Roberts (12:04). The Razorbacks beat the Golden Eagles earlier in the season. So how will the rematch go? Can Max Abmas and Kevin Obanor lead Oral Roberts to an upset? And the final game on Saturday features Houston and Syracuse (19:23). Can Buddy Boeheim stay red-hot and lead the Orange to another upset? Rico thinks the Cougars pose a tough matchup for Boeheim and Co. Then we welcome the hottest shooter in the country, Syracuse guard Buddy Boeheim to talk about Syracuse's run in the NCAA tournament, life as a coach's son, and how tough his dad's 2-3 zone can be on opponents. Plus - Buddy promises to incorporate a new celebration after a three-pointer. (24:30) We move on to Sunday's slate and kick things off with Gonzaga and Creighton (43:25). The Zags are huge favorites but can Marcus Zegarowski get hot enough to pull off the miracle? The only chalk-matchup of the tournament is in the East Region with 1-seed Michigan and 4-seed Florida State (45:54). Is this the best matchup of the Sweet 16? Do the Seminoles have an answer for Hunter Dickinson? The Wolverines or Seminoles take on the winner of UCLA vs. Alabama (48:26). Can the Bruins slow down Nate Oats' 3-point-heavy Crimson Tide offense? And the final game of the Sweet 16 is a Pac-12 matchup between Oregon and USC (51:05). How do the Ducks match up with the Mobleys? The Trojans seem to be the consensus pick among the Bench Mob and Rico makes a bold prediction for a potential Gonzaga-USC Elite Eight matchup. And we wrap things up with an update from the Women's NCAA Tournament which features red-hot UConn led by Paige Bueckers (54:52).

On today's Barstool Bench Mob, the first weekend of the 2021 NCAA Tournament is in the books. We have a Sweet 16 to look forward to next weekend. Marty, Jake, and Rico break down all the action from Sunday and Monday's Round of 32 games starting in the West Region (03:53). 2-seed Iowa goes down to 7-seed Oregon to end the season in a disappointing way. Did the Ducks have a rest advantage after not competing in the first round? They'll take on conference foe USC after the Trojans ran 3-seed Kansas out of the gym. At the top of the region, Gonzaga and Creighton breezed through their respective 2nd round games and will meet next weekend. Can Marcus Zegarowski and the Blue Jays do the impossible and take down the Zags? Next up, the South Region (12:39) where Oral Roberts is officially the Cinderella of the 2021 NCAA Tournament. Max Abmas and the Golden Eagles take down Florida and have a rematch with Muss Bus and the Razorbacks. Arkansas edged out Texas Tech sealing Marty's fate as he now has to face his punishment. And with Baylor and Villanova both moving on to the Sweet 16, do the Wildcats without Collin Gillespie have a shot against the Bears? We move onto the most chaotic region of the tournament, the Midwest Region (22:24), where the 2, 8, 11, and 12 seeds are left. Who is the favorite for the Final Four? Sister Jean makes her return to the Sweet 16. Loyola-Chicago looked like they were the top seed in their dominant win over 1-seed Illinois. The Ramblers take on Oregon State next Saturday after the Beavers take down Cade Cunningham and 4-seed Oklahoma State. And at the bottom of the region, Syracuse does it again. Can Buddy Boeheim lead the Orange to the Elite Eight over 2-seed Houston? And we wrap things up in the East Region (36:59) where, at the top, 1-seed Michigan outlasted 8-seed LSU. How far can Michigan go without Isaiah Livers? Can Leonard Hamilton lead the Seminoles to the Elite Eight after their big win over Colorado? The rest of the region featured routs as UCLA took care of business against Abilene Christian and Alabama blew out Maryland. How did Texas lose to Abilene Christian? Can Alabama win the whole thing? Rico thinks so. Don't forget to rate, review, and subscribe to Barstool Bench Mob!

On today's episode of Barstool Bench Mob, Rico, Marty, and Jake recap a wild first round of the NCAA Tournament. We start in the West Region where Virginia officially ended it's courtship with Rico losing to 13-seed Ohio. Creighton barely escaped an upset bid from UCSB. How far can the Blue Jays go? And unfortunately we have our first COVID-related no-contest allowing Oregon to move on after VCU was forced to bow out. (02:31) Onto the South Region where Ohio State was stunned by Oral Roberts and North Texas topped Purdue further confirming Marty's Big Ten take. Plus - the bet has been set. A second round matchup between Arkansas and Texas Tech will determine whether Marty will take a difficult math test or Rico will be read the Berenstain Bears 47 times. (10:50) Moving to the Midwest Region - three double digit seeds advance to the round of 32. 12 seed Oregon State beat down Tennessee to continue their late-season run. But are they really a threat to Cade Cunningham and Oklahoma State? And we have an intra-state matchup between 1-seed Illinois and 8-seed Loyola-Chicago. On the bottom of the region, Jake's Orange dominated San Diego State setting up an old-school Big East battle with West Virginia. Plus - does Rutgers have a chance against Houston? (21:57) And finally to the East Region where Alabama has a very clear path to the Elite Eight after 3 double-digit seeds advanced to Monday. UConn disappointed against Maryland, UCLA took down BYU and Abilene-Christian shocked Texas. (28:44) Don't forget to subscribe, rate, and review Barstool Bench Mob.

On today's bracket breakdown episode of Barstool Bench Mob, Jake, Marty, and Rico kick things off with the major storylines coming out of Indianapolis (02:19). We have some top-tier referees being sent home due to COVID tracing. Players are complaining about the food and conditions inside the "controlled environment" in Indy. But in the end, we are just happy to have an NCAA Tournament after missing last year's. Our bracket breakdown begins with the West Region (16:28). Is Gonzaga the clear favorite to come out of this region? Will we see an early-season rematch of the Zags and Hawkeyes in the Elite Eight? Are Evan Mobley and the Trojans being overlooked as a sleeper? In the South Region, is Baylor the most vulnerable #1 seed? (26:47) Marty and Rico try to hammer out their Texas Tech-Arkansas bet. Is Winthrop the trendiest 12-5 upset pick? And Rico is rooting hard for Florida after the Virginia Tech social media team jumped all over his past Hokies takes. Over to the Midwest Region where Illinois is the hottest team in the country but they could have a tough matchup against Oklahoma State in the Sweet 16. (41:48) Why isn't West Virginia getting any love? And Rico's got some tempo bets that you're going to want to lock in before Friday. In the East Region, everybody is counting out Michigan. (48:51) With Isaiah Livers out, are the Wolverines in danger of an early exit? Rico is out on Texas, Marty is in on Florida State and both have no idea if they love or hate Maryland. And Rico slips in a free gift for the Mobsters. To wrap things up, the guys hit on some of the recent coaching carousel news around the country.
