Red Blue Hoops Season 3: Episode 3

Jan 19, 2017

Both Indiana University and University of Kentucky men’s basketball teams celebrated wins the past week, however host Chad Payton had a lot to talk about with IU’s recent close game at Penn State and what the team needs to accomplish in upcoming games. Host Evan Beck reviewed the wins UK and tried figuring out why opposing teams have chanted “overrated” towards the end of the games.

Beck and Payton also discussed if college basketball should be moved back to start in January. They examine if by not competing with football would help increase TV ratings and revenues, make players finish two semesters rather than being one-and-done, and work on player development with more focus on academics during the fall semester. Review of the University and Evansville and University of Southern Indiana’s past week to close out the show.
