The Ostrom Avenue Podcast Episode 172: College Basketball Bracketology with Mike DeCourcy
Ethan Frank, Jordan Leonard, and Hudson Ridley discuss Syracuse men's basketball's buzzer-beating win over Miami on Saturday and subsequent blowout loss to Florida State on Tuesday to open the show (1:15). Then, Mike DeCourcy from Fox Sports and The Sporting News joins the show to talk about the current landscape of college basketball, his history with the game, how he got into bracketology, and which conferences are a tier above the rest this season. Then, Mike talks about how Syracuse and the ACC fit into that and if the Orange could realistically make the NCAA Tournament before closing with some stories about covering Carmelo Anthony back in 2003 (22:00). Finally, the guys close things up by heaping praise on Syracuse women's basketball and its 16-2 record and discuss the first few football schedule dates trickling out, including the Orange's October trip to UNLV (58:15).
