Five teams currently ranked in the Top 25 have never reached the Final Four. Hoops and Howie predict which of those teams could make it happen this season. And they discuss which teams that entered February outside the Top 25 could become the ninth unranked team in 10 tournaments to make a Final Four run, as Auburn did in 2019 and Loyola-Chicago in 2018.
Plus, Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton joins the podcast for a moving conversation about his career, and Hoops and Howie reflect on the life and legacy of a college basketball pioneer, Temple coach John Chaney.
Thanks to Coach Hamilton for his time and candor, and as always to Dick Vitale, Chris McLernon, Ricky Sanders and Sonic Librarian.
