Podcast: Big 12 Basketball Standings, Jayhawks in the NBA

I’m joined by Fetch to talk basketball, lots of basketball.

NBA: Utah Jazz at Minnesota Timberwolves Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The weekend wasn’t the greatest, with Kansas Volleyball being the only positive note in real athletics, and while the KU basketball team raised nearly $2 million in an exhibition match, there wasn’t really anything there worth talking about. Instead, we turn our attention to the upcoming Big 12 basketball season and the recently started NBA season.

Topics discussed:

-We ignore the debacle of a weekend KU football had.

-Big 12 standings predictions

-TCU rankings driven by Jamie Dixon as coach?

-Big 12 in KenPom preseason predictions

-Does the balance in the league make Kansas' streak more impressive?

-Discrepancies between RCT rankings and others.

-Twitter Q&A (via @kevbo9): KU is down 3, time running out, who do you want taking that last shot?

-Jayhawks in the NBA: Andrew Wiggins benefitting from addition of Jimmy Butler.

-Josh Jackson interacts poorly with a fan.

-Frank Mason and his ability to make an impact off the bench.

-Contract Extensions for Wiggins and Joel Embiid.

-Fetch's College Hockey Minute

-Kansas Volleyball looks good against Texas Tech.

-World Series Predictions
