College Basketball Podcast: How Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett led Duke past Virginia

Duke, without Tre Jones, beat Virginia 72-70 inside Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday night. I was there. I wrote about it. Fun game. Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett were awesome. So, naturally, Matt Norlander and I opened this episode of the Eye On College Basketball Podcast on the Blue Devils’ big win.

After that, the conversation went like this:

  • 17:00: Michigan lost 64-54 at Wisconsin this weekend. It was the Wolverines’ first loss of the season. The game had a controversial ending. But was it really controversial?
  • 28:30: Kentucky beat Auburn 82-80 on the road Saturday. Great win for the Wildcats. They’ve now won four straight games. But to the surprise of some UK fans, I still have North Carolina ranked ahead of the John Calipari’s team. I took a minute (or five) to explain why.
  • 36:30: Kansas just lost at West Virginia. Texas Tech just lost at Baylor. So the Big 12 is getting super-goofy. Will a 12-6 league record really win at least a share of the league title?
  • 42:00: Maryland is at Michigan State on Monday night. The Terrapins have won seven straight. The Spartans have won 11 straight. Who wins this one?
  • 48:30: Virginia Tech is at North Carolina on Monday night. One of us picked the Hokies to upset the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill.
