College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games
NCAA reportedly considering releasing March Madness bracket
"Less than twenty four hours ago there was a reports via CBS sports bags the NC double a what is considering still releasing the sixty eight team brackets in order to perhaps as you heard Bruce pearl talk about in the update there for Phil you know the dream of some kids just hearing their team being announced as part of the of the NC double a tournament and you heard Bruce pearl make a compelling argument as to why he thought it was a good idea perhaps in these in this crazy time that we're living in Brian Hanley perhaps give us some sense of normalcy to people right now when they're looking for anything

"We were watching that game than that. You're calling against Iowa estate and we just announced that we're coming Auburn for Game Day and there were a bunch of people in that room route. Line all come on. Let's go back and I was running the you literally screaming at the television. One hour they doing. Ah But yeah we got a fourteen point lead that we gave him. We did make some really bad place. But you know what Jay McCormick doc is up. They'll he played ten minutes per game last year as a junior. And now he's GonNa close now he's GonNa Finish Games starting games close things out so it is what it is definitely a process. It is a learning process. How about having the seniors and he liked which is so rare right now but like this team like? It's it's their time. How coaching seniors? It's hard because it's time through the doors. Sometimes it's easy sometimes. It's hard house this team into coach because we all know seniors. Sometimes they've one foot in one out the worried about what the future holds. How do you keep them in the moment? Yeah it's great. Listen it's all about making history and and that's that's why you go to. That's why you go to Virginia Tech not necessarily North Carolina. 'CAUSE IT North Carolina. They win it every. Oh yes they win it every year and I know Dan when you were in Indiana. It's and try. An Indiana was winning at all time internal supposed to win it championships. Great but it was just another `nother year on a banner and you're supposed to do it at places like Auburn. You're not and so our seniors right now. Are the winning seniors seniors of ever in the history of basketball before your period if we can get to a certain number twenty something whatever it is going to be. They will be the winningest of the one year a two year three year and four year. And that's worth working for your this basketball team. Tonight has a chance to what get their what. I don't even know what we are seventeen and to whatever whatever we have a chance to get their termite is that not. Is that not worth putting every individual you know accomplishment aside for for for another couple of months and so it's really been easy. These guys are lock in to trying to trying to make history and and try to write their own identity look lashes. His team wrote a lot of checks. He's having a cash like Dan. The final four the hanging over. They're all gone. It'd be five of those kids are gone and these kids are having live live up to that. WELL THEY WANNA make their own history and they know they can't do it unless they unless they play together and play as a team coach specific to on the court. You mentioned that you guys are making shots in the first half second half not so much taking shot making out of it when your team is playing. Well what are you doing. We're scoring in transition And and putting pressure on. What's the hardest thing to do and get back and get matched up so the willingness to be able to go in there and attack? The the second thing we're doing is is is defensively. We were making it difficult for you to just run your stuff where we're not letting change size of the floor We're not. We're not trying to not let your best players beat us. I thought we did a great job on Halliburton a great guard for Iowa state by making sure that if they decided to put him in a ball screen he was gonNA AC- forearms and forelegs four is and a lot of bodies and and we're GONNA make him make other guys beat us So you know I think that would be one thing. As far as our Scottish assistant coaches do phenomenal job. I think game planning. It's not like we play everybody the same way every night. We try to everybody the way we think we can. They they struggle. You're not very good at. That's how we're going to try to play you on that particular. We're not good enough to simply impose our will. We've got to be able to do things differently. And and then and then I I. I think the biggest adjust that we've made from Russia this year as last year the best three point shooting team in in in in in college basketball. Maybe the second best in the history of college basketball go behind that Villanova national championship team. We don't shoot as well. So we gotta get downhill. You saw similar down and getting down there. Is it a coral getting downhill. Now we get off. I do a better job getting Austin Wylie touches and having finish that would be one more piece to to be more efficient offensively. Then you put those things together give yourself I find that fighting chance. So you've got all miss. The night you Bob Kentucky Saturday where selling standing room only seats or spots by the way I bet have a seat. I'm not standing on some damn spot nex this weekend. Are you bringing j coverage. Yeah Jason's right here. Because I'm zoomed grow. We got we got the girl in Shaker. I mean Jake Jake's right here next to me Jake longer. The girl bark in well. He's getting up. He looks pretty excited. And I know but I might make an appearance. He's going to be at some spot whether it's the Grove Arken or somewhere here Abe. I'm not sure what but he's not. He's not going to Oxford today. And like so. You've only the pavilions GONNA be Rockin. You guys now become a big game on someone's schedule I mean like you go to the final four. It's a league game you. They're coming off a win against Georgia. They've got Auburn last year's final four team How do you get your team to stay in the moment and not get past this Saturday quote unquote fat game The the great motivators in our game. I've what's your message shooting today. It's it's it's real simple. You know we we. We're like four in in in in fifteen. Our last asked nineteen visits here. You Ravi had the game last year. All it was open. It was the opening of the SEC. Season I go and and so I think the biggest thing that probably is the hardest at a judgment for the kids is is Art There's such a big price that are in other words if we're if we're a net nineteen wherever we are on the net this game's more valuable to ole miss than than than the game even at Georgia. 'CAUSE 'cause the mass and so you know when we went to Florida or we went to Alabama. I mean those coaches are saying. Look this this is the season did this. We gotta get. And they're not that good. I mean they're good but they're not they're beatable and so that's the that's the great challenge. It's not about overlooking Ole Miss. It's not about the week it really truly is. It's just affected. Look a little better than this. But we're not a lot better we're a little and we're maybe a little deeper but but you know and so therefore this a play the game and and and it's really more about us. It's US taking care of the basketball. Ask about US getting better. Shot on finishing through contact. It does it is kind of driving me crazy a little bit nationally cow so You know they're just letting defenders Kinda just jump in front of guys taking the ball to the basket and and and and who. There's a lot of contact. In fact. I think that that may be being initiated by the offensive players. But they're but these defenders are not legal guarding position. This contact i. It's is not a complaint because it's not just against Auburn sort of a national a national that gives you wants to Texas Tech Kentucky game late and and and it was. That was such a wonderful basket. Okay really physical Gosh it was really hard to score because who is getting to the Rim and they let both teams you know Kinda play through that contact. What's what's your thought on the SEC? it it's not as great as it was a year ago last year. How about this last year? There were four teams use. There were clearly good enough to get to the final four. I mean we were the fourth best team in the late because because Lsu is dominant. They won the regular season Kentucky you know they have three lottery auto guys and and and a and a and a tremendous great team. I one of the better teams had Tennessee all year long. We're number one. We're number one all year long. I mean right. And then there's Auburn and Mississippi state you know you had weatherspoon got right now and a couple of the pieces. Stay with really good anyways. I don't know the League is a strong at the top as it was a year ago. But what's different. A little bit is is is obviously the middle and the bottom of the league is really really competitive. You'll Alabama They do I mean look our Lewis and John Petty and those guys were great highly recruited kids and and really good players Kirk Jones and Alex. I tried to get all pissed off now said no to me with Alabama and they sort of great job. They're playing defense. They're playing fast. I got Eric Musselman's doing at Arkansas undersized and spreading it shooting it you know you guys know what what what a good job. We'll wait. News doesn't a AH unbelievably talented team. Athletic Kentucky estill Kentucky Feel the league. The League is really good. It's really it's it's really balanced. It just may not be quite as strong at the top and you might have in relation to you guys but in relation to to the field. It is a strong because the field is in his strong. As it wasn't passed on. You agree with that I do. I agree that that that you know like we talked about. There are no great teams. I don't I don't don't you know there are there are there are some great teams and there'll be some great teams by the time it's all said and done because teams don't just start something start great and they with her. You know other teams become great and I thought we we one of those teams last year we became a great like I said you saw us last year started the SEC season and You know we've have you pieces and by the by the time it was all said March. Oh my gosh. That team really came together I think what what what makes it fun for. You guys is and for all of us. That love college basketball is just pay attention. And don't lose your locker room because you know what there's going to be about twenty five teams. It's baby thirty teams this year. That are capable of making a run because because of the fact that you know the difference between the the great ones in the good ones is not that much. And that's that's that's another great point. Don't lose your locker room how that's as important as anything basketball. No it is and you've got you know and I don't think it's ever about get you high but you can't get too low. You know again. I was very proud of our team last week. You know we we we we we got. We got smashed it Alabama and Florida and really gotta take into us as the fourth ranked fourth in the country big prize in her head. We just we. We just couldn't handle it. We couldn't respond came home and even those home we played well against South Carolina. We played well against St Shot. Fifty percent and both of those games are roughly speaking. And now we're back on the road and now you know not a schedule turns up. So how much better to be get you'll this week. What did we learn? And how much did we grow and and And and and can we keep our coach Pearl. Thank you so much. I know everyone's pulling out yet Thank you for spending some time with us on a on a game day. Yeah now.

"There is nothing like a head coach who is accessible and honest and. Just what Bruce Pearl is. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it from working with them to covering his team over the last few years Auburn and Bruce Pearl after a very difficult night last night phenomenal win but to see Chuma, okay. Can go down the way he has to take the time to join us right now as he is the Auburn head coach on the shell Pennzoil performance line. And in Bruce, I I realized that man how difficult this must be. I know what Schumer means to you. And what he means. It a team. I know. And I know what he means to you as as a young, man. I know is is it happening. Now has it happened, you know anymore? It's all kind of as we speak, isn't it? Yeah. It is. It's he's over at the hospital right now getting the MRI, and we're praying for the best we fear fear for the worst. We fair about the ACL. And we'll say, you know, you're right. Great player. He's a nightmare matchup for people because you can do things inside about. He's he's he's the most underrated defensive player and all college basketball, and like so many of these kids Dari, they took me at there at my work. We really haven't done much at Auburn a win Huma committed to come to us. He could have gone to a lot of places, and but we're not far from Atlanta. And and and and we stab with a a pretty decent relationship of trust or the recruiting process, and we would not be here without it. And unfortunately, right now, we're gonna find a way to compete against Kentucky without him. That's the thing for the flaming you win a game. Like that you want to be celebrating and said, there's tears and everybody is upset and then try and worrying, and what do you sense with your team, Bruce that they can get themselves back, the focusing, you know, you had depth. And you got a lot of town on this team. He's kids keep coming through for you one after another in key spots. What is the general feeling you sense with this basketball team right now, I do sense next man up? I do. And we've got nine healthy bodies, which is still enough to go in there and compete where rotating ten we just lost our most valuable player, and I do think the guys are anxious and ready to be able to respond, and and I think they're they're ready for the moment. That's what happens all the time. When you guys sitting on the bench, your they're not they're they're thinking about next year. That thing about transferring about an easier a better way and in archives off our bed ship in locked and loaded, and and just like you said, you know, responding all year long. I the second thing that was really really hopeful is our kids wanted to pray almost as soon as he went down. We circled up. We weren't talking about basketball are minister was praying asking God to put a hedge of protection of Schumer. And and that was immediately what our teams thoughts were. And then as far as not celebrating. That's okay because we got work to do. We have a game on at one o'clock against the best defensive team in college basketball and strength with PJ Washington. And I still think the best team left of tournament. And we're gonna we're working right now as we speak to prepare. Yeah. Bruce Pearl Auburn head coach with us. Now PJ looked really really good and looked frankly really really healthy last night for Kentucky. Now, you guys. Knowing your team, and you admit it, we live by the three we die by the three. But in the first half against Carolina your five for nineteen yet. You're still up to and it was easy to feel good about that. I would assume and then you come out you hit twelve threes in the second half, and it's lights out. Now, it's a different test against Kentucky without Chuma. What has to happen? Is that it getting good looks from outside because they also defend the perimeter fairly wells as well. Yeah, they do they're reluctant. They're very athletic. Tau does not get enough credit for his ability to coach the game. And and I'll be always thinks it's his talent..

I mean, these are fascinating games. And and I know you've been talking to the coaches and the players so let's start with the Auburn game. That's the first one we've talked about the aspect of it in relation to illnesses, but couple of other storylines one in particular came out today with a a column in USA day, just evisceration Bruce Pearl, and I know that he's had to deal with those questions. But it seems like most of those questions are more in his rear view mirror than than currently today. Has there been any reaction about that today? Yeah. You know, he was asked about this during his saleability yesterday, you know, for his take on the cesspool. And that was the reporters whereas the cesspool that is college basketball and the role that Bruce Pearl had in creating that cesspool. And listen, it it doesn't bother for the question certainly didn't bother parole, and he disputed that characterization. He said college basketball is necess- cool. Of course, they're going to be that Apple's here and there, but that's what the NC double A's for the NC AA is there to enforce the rules and make sure that everybody is following them. What pearls Pearl did a fantastic job of deflecting in saying that there's lots of good happening in college sports, and in college basketball specifically, and we shouldn't lose sight of that. Now, that's of course, very convenient answer for him. But you know, he obviously doesn't want his team to be focused on this. He certainly doesn't doesn't want this to be a distraction on his role in sort of in the history of. College basketball, and whatever happened in the past. And so he was very let's call it unbothered didn't mind getting the question, but certainly didn't show any any indications. He was upset by by that kind of question before you go I want to talk a little bit about just giving with these coaches because we watched a your interaction with cow. We've seen you talking to other coaches, and I mean, they're all different. I mean, this is the highest stage in the in the game. But but I I detected from Cal when I think it was yesterday that you seem like he was confident. He was good mood..

Cleveland Cleveland, Zairean Williamson And Duke Zion Williamson discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"That could possibly happen Zion. Williamson that Duke who struggled in a win overall orbit yesterday, by the way, Bruce Pearl. I think I just think that Bruce Pearl coach. And I think yesterday was the latest example of him doing that let me say this, you know. When I think of Duke Zion Williamson day Barrett is clearly the best player on duke's team. But Zahn Williamson as a monster. Six seven forty six inch vertical. Leap two hundred eighty pounds built like a chisel brick house is something special to behold, his boy handling skills. Still suspect to me he can pass. He definitely can jump out of the gym. Let's see what he can do whether or not he could shoot or something like that. Here's what I will tell you. That I have a concern about. I don't want. This man in Cleveland Cleveland is clearly trying to lose games. Cleveland clearly has no intention of winning basketball. You wanna call it? Take say is not taking or whatever fine. But I'm telling you, they wanna know damn basketball games. I don't even believe Kevin love is that hurt. I think they'd listen Kevin Lada y play you want to build a franchise going forward. If you the Cleveland Cavaliers, why would you play Kevin love? If you're smart, you should trade him other just should do Sunday started UCLA from the areas. But whatever you do don't wish Zion where it's an end of the Cleveland because ladies and gentlemen, it's not about as as not the fact that he's great and gifting and all that stuff. Of course, you want that from a number one overall pick. But if he ends up in Cleveland understand the magnitude of it all the real problem lies in the fact that he is the one person drawing comparisons to LeBron because of his physical prowess. He's so much bigger and stronger than everybody he's going against if he would have come out in a draft. And they drafted him in Cleveland. They would expect him to be LeBron. And I think that's a recipe for disaster for him. I think the best thing that can happen with Zairean Williamson is that he ends up anywhere, but Cleveland because anywhere else you'll just be a great talent. But in Cleveland, they'll be looking for you to be LeBron. And I don't think that's something that works for him. I really really don't it. Eight say ESPN, it's inundate seven to ninety seven. That's the other thing. I wanted to mention this ladies

"This question last month. If you would bet a week's pay on a team to win a title this season. Alabama football do basketball, Golden State Warriors. Now, who would you watch out of those three? All right. So is it a different question? Yeah. We're looking for the poll. We did. We did a quick poll who you bet on the win the title in that sport. Okay. We'll get it. Yeah. Because I'm gonna guess well a month ago, you didn't know about two basketball, Golden State, you foregone probably Alabama would be tops on that list. But, but I I would say Golden State because you start you're still gonna have to beat them four times. Somebody has to beat them four times. You only have to beat Alabama once and you might say, well, there's only a couple of teams that are going to get that opportunity. Yeah. But they they only have to beat him. Once if they faced each other ten times in you, Alabama might win nine, but you get that one. Maybe so I would go Golden State because I don't know when they're healthy. Even if there's drama you still have to beat them four times. I don't think you can do that Duke basketball Duke will be susceptible this year. I don't think they're going onto faded talented group. Alabama Auburn hung in there with him last night, though. But it wasn't a neutral site. I'd probably go Golden State Alabama. And then Duke basketball. All right.

Let's get to that for a great call are. Yup. There. No ceremony. Been there done there last year. If you wanna look at it look up at the at the banner. Let's go it's a new season. So while we're very very proud of the fact that what nineteen sixty nine hundred ninety nine thousand eighteen three times where the SEC championship and regular season. Great. We celebrate it last year. Let's play and talk about let's play and you had a magical season. And you have a number of those players back and healthy every macklemore which up see didn't have at the end of the season your team right now, where are you in terms of where you think you are in terms of level, you're playing in relation to your expectation? Well, relationship expectation stuff would not fair because authorize out four or five weeks resting foot, and he'll be back in about a week. And then doughty turned his ankle and a couple of weeks, and so those are potential starters. So we're not. Out there and where to get it back right about time. See the start. So the good news and bad news is there's a lot of rest on them and the teams worked without him. And so you'd like to have them before the season starts, but we don't and so right now, we're not we want to be. But I do think we could be a really good team. We've got nine ten guys that can really play the character. The effort the attitude has been really good so far to preseason the challenges schedule, so tough we open up with south Alabama. We have Washington, and then we'd go to Maui. Yeah. It's brutal schedule Doughty's transit from VCU. And he's a guy that brings a little cuff. He's a high-energy guy. He's a verbal guy. He's connecting guy. You know, what have you had in practice last year? What's your expectation for it? You know, we keep lots of stats, you know, in one of the stats. We keep is who wins and Samir dowdy whiz. Two to three on three five on five. It just he his team's win. So therefore, he just makes guys better because he's such a willing passer. He's improved his outside. During. Not a great physical defender that good link channels every shot he completes he wants to be coached to he wants to get better. He's really coach evil. Plays with passion. Plays should ship. Buddy shoulder. Anyways. Those are pretty good trade. So you lost to the players Sean Murray and Mustapha Harun you're getting suppliers back. Obviously he mentioned Austin. You're also getting job here for back nine games into the season, our heart is it going to be to kinda kinda get him back in the flow. You play. I games season. You got a tough preseason schedule. You know, you're in Hawaii. You've got university of Washington is preseason top twenty team. And then all of a sudden you've got this piece coming back that got an extra nine games doodle this situation last year how you dealt with that in terms of getting him game ready for your league season. But getting your team ready for the current schedule. Yeah. It's it's been tough in this sense. You gotta give them enough reps to get him ready. But if you give them too many reps, then you stop the gross at the rest of your team because of the injuries he's been forced to actually be out there a little bit more than what I would have normally..
