Courtside: Dan Gavitt on Indianapolis hosting the NCAA Tournament; Shaka Smart on beating Kansas by a bunch at Phog Allen

Seth Greenberg and Dan Dakich tip off the podcast with NCAA SVP of Basketball Dan Gavitt to discuss Indianapolis hosting the entire NCAA Tournament, the living and practice set-up for teams, family’s being allowed to attend, and the difference between a controlled environment and a bubble. Then, the guys get into their thoughts on a very down ACC, the top-four conferences, Drake’s 13-0 start and if it makes sense to play conference tournaments. Later, Texas head coach Shaka Smart stops by to talk about leaving the Bald Brotherhood, Jericho Sims as the unsung hero of his team, beating Kansas by a bunch at Phog Allen, the bench generating energy without fans and throwing pig guts in the locker room to send a message to his players.
