America Needs Basketball Right Now
The last few episodes have been Minnesota specific but this week we move East, to Ultimate Hoops Boston to talk to Taylor Pettiford and Roland Millien.
This was a special episode. Considering everything that has gone in this country in the last week, It was helpful to talk, and more importantly, LISTEN to two people who I respect and admire in our UH Nation community.
Ro, Taylor, and myself left our conversation with the consensus that basketball is really missed in this country right now. The opportunity to play a sport and connect with people of all races, all backgrounds. To share a laugh and a high-five playing a game we all love.
We recorded this LIVE episode yesterday, June 3rd via our Ultimate Hoops Nation Facebook Group.. If you want to rewatch the podcast contribute to the conversation and comments, join our Ultimate Hoops Nation Facebook Group.

The Return of Jonathon "Hot Tub" Moore
In this week's episode, we continue to look back on the UH league's rich history and talk with the legends who played in the league's early days.

Moore's last Ultimate Hoops game was in September 2015. Since then, he's been reclusive to the UH world, rarely seen or heard from. But today, he's back. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, 6-time Gold Cup UH League Champion, Jonathon "Hot Tub" Moore!

How Playing Soccer Improves Your Basketball Game
There are 10 athletes on on basketball court and only one basketball with players required to move off the ball at all times. Setting screens, moving around defenders, looking for open lanes and fighting to get space are all staples of the game.
All of these movements made in basketball have a direct correlation to movements made in the game of soccer.
On this episode, Brandon Busbee, National Soccer Manager for Life Time, enters the UH studio to chat about the parallels between the game of soccer and basketball and how playing both can help your game on the hardcourt and the pitch.
