ESPN's Fran Fraschilla and Xavier Assistant Coach Travis Steele
Reags is joined this episode by ESPN's Fran Fraschilla to talk about the Big 12 and preview the Big 12 Tournament. However, the show starts with Xavier assistant coach Travis Steele to talk about the Big East. Steele talks about the depth of the Big East and how tough it was to go from celebrating at home after the win over Providence to play DePaul for the outright Big East title. Along with that Steele talks about what makes Villanova so good and how Xavier goes about recruiting with that in mind.
After that Reags and Fran talk about the Big 12 and if there's a legit chance that nine teams could get into the NCAA Tournament. Because it's the Big 12 there's of course Trae Young and Oklahoma talk. Who is the real Trae Young? Is it the one we saw to start the year or is it the one from the last five weeks? They also discuss West Virginia's inconsistency and what makes Chris Beard so special at Texas Tech.
