March Madness: the teams still standing, the state of the NCAA and college basketball players, and Philly’s teams and their history in the Big Dance

Listen 00:48:44

Guests: Jonathan Tjarks, Jonathan Tannenwald, and Ellen Staurowsky

Fresh off of the Villanova Wildcats’ convincing defeat of the University of Miami Hurricanes in Louisville last night, we’re talking all-things March Madness and college basketball. We’ll talk about yesterday’s Sweet 16 games, how Philly’s teams have fared thus far, the rights of student-athletes, and who’s predicted to win it all in the women’s and men’s tournaments. We’ll also take a look at the NCAA and their role in both the tournament and the lives of players. We’ll be joined by The Ringer’s JONATHAN TJARKS, Drexel University’s ELLEN STAUROWSKY, and JONATHAN TANNENWALD of Philly.com.
