It was the highest ranked matchup Monday night between the #7 UConn Huskies and #8 Kentucky Wildcats in the National Championship. The two hottest teams in the tournament made for quite an interesting matchup in Jerry's World. Joe and Brian will recap the game and give their thoughts on the entire season and Shabazz Napiers comments post game about the NCAA banning the Huskies.
It has been an interesting first week of Major League Baseball. Brett Gardner hit the Yankees first home run, the defending World Series Champions Red Sox got swept at home against the Brewers, and Charlie Blackmon is on fire. Charlie who? Exactly.
Brian and Joe will also talk a little golf as it is Masters Week down in Georgia, and no Tiger Woods will not be playing so Joe will give you a couple of names to watch anyways.
Indiana takes on its first Top 25 opponent of the season on Friday, November 22nd, when the Hoosiers battle UCONN in Madison Square Garden as part of the 2K Sports Classic.
The game will tip after the conclusion of Boston College-Washington (around 7:45 ET) and will be televised on ESPN2 and the WatchESPN app.
Of course, we will be here right after the final buzzer sounds to provide instant analysis.
Note: Fran Fraschilla made it through 25+ minutes in Thursday's game without the ESPN-mandated mention of Bob Knight needing to come back to Bloomington. We'll see if he can hold out longer Friday night.
UCONN's Shabazz Napier took control of the NCAA Tourney from "Jump" and eh left the NCAA with a little message after UCONN's fourth National Championship. The Redskins signed the supposed gang-banging speedster, DeSean Jackson. Was the signing a mistake? Join Desert Eeez, Jedi and Coast as we breakdown the latest in sports.
This week we look at UConn's exciting Tournament Run which ended with their National Championship on Monday night. Coach Kevin Ollie, Shabazz Napier, and Ryan Boatwright led a great UConn defense to unseat Kentucky in the National Title Game, along with their big wins against Florida in the Final Four and Michigan State in the Elite 8. It's been quite a run. Plus, a small preview of the upcoming 2014 Masters Golf Tournament and in Hour 2, Kevin on the Cape joins Dave for "Random Q's".
What can we say that will make you feel better about the Akron performance? Well they won, and they get to redeem themselves against UConn. Listen to us at 10am on Saturday morning to hear how they might do that. You can catch us right here on www.blogtalkradio.com/sportsweeklive. Go Blue
Most people know the University of Connecticut from their women's basketball team, but their treatment of women isn't exactly above board. Gloria Aldred represents victims of rape and sexual harassmwent and makes the case that the school ignored these problems. UConn is also ignoring the education of its basketball players as news breaks that ony 8% of UConn's basketball players graduate. We'll talk about where UConn has gone wrong. Plus news on Obamacare, the NSA, and more.
It's Championship Monday and we will bring you the latest news in MLB, NFL and more. Then it is time to talk Final Four, first reviewing the semis and UConn's great win over Florida. Then we look back at Aaron Harrison's clutch 3 giving Kentucky the win and sending them to the Final game. We will preview the Kentucky vs UConn championship game.

College basketball is about one month away and the top-25 polls are starting to come out. Today, the coaches poll was released, and I'll dissect the poll from top to bottom. Who are the top teams to watch from an entertainment standpoint? Which teams have a legitimate shot at cutting down the nets? Can UCONN repeat without Shabazz Napier? What teams are ranked too high and which are too low? Do national powers like Kentucky, Duke and Kansas hold the upper hand this season?
