    George Washington head coach Jamion Christian joins the show to talk about leadership conference GW 360 coming up July 1, how he has empowered his players to lead in their communities, and his goal of having his team make 400 threes this year (10:30-24:35).

    The Portal Persists

    The Portal Persists

    A wild mess of a show, Brad and Kevin hop on after taking last week off to discuss all the recent action in the hoops world. They start with Oklahoma State's postseason ban and what impact it could have on Cade Cunningham's plans for next season. Then they hit on Justin Smith's commitment to Arkansas and break down the Razorbacks' crowded rotation before heading to the rest of the transfer market and some of the more minor moves over the last two weeks. Then we really go off the rails and rant about what social media does to impact recruiting as well as the stupidity that is the 6/15 start date to contact 2022 recruits.
