You know those those got -- in the most work in the offseason in general terms usually works out form that. Nobody put more time and then in the offseason and -- crystal the masters it helps Bolger coaching style. What has several and I wouldn't be able to point to just one particular coach would certainly -- coaches -- -- played or. On June crude Evansville he can only savior in the in the two gentlemen that might know what my bosses. Those days in the Wake Forest have good prospects on and -- -- -- little -- -- everybody's. Experiences -- he -- -- -- as a player -- -- -- I think helped define -- you -- Chicago. Well -- you're coaching your alma mater years ago did you ever dating yourself with this kind of success here.

They are playing well right now you know wrote on the bubble we'd have less day but we've still buying you. -- -- there probably needs to get that bottle is sure in. Alabama the FCC 28 overall quality or Cochran. Cart record but and major conferences. Eight yes. So we hear -- out there at work to do you ever do not look within our guy. Let's get 11.

Let's check in with some of the members of the LA Clippers starting with Randy full -- the find out the most important thing Baylor during their college day. When the biggest things I learned in Karros has to compete in an outsider. You know. Coming into college as an Indian you know American you know everything is easy to do when they're on this. Somewhat similar in size of criticism of talent become becomes a little tougher. Assaulting. And doesn't know who is just to compete not just when you human good -- You're not so -- every single day and I carried that over to India. I'll say probably. He's never taken anything for granted. Because everything goes quick. On semi coast coast events. And now's -- many -- stressed. And all of us is as his players was to make you practice hard. Just never take the game of basketball for granted because. You know it is a real world out there so. Let's say that's one thing. I saved my coach too emotional problems dollars and it was more justice and sensitive working hard every day you know practiced. -- and college prices were much harder I think than it is now because we have so many games to be played throughout the week and practice you know. Three hour practices running sprinting you know competing doing a lot of because of drew isn't making your approach mental -- -- mojo working and try to she gets in Mexico so. Ohio State had an emphatic win over Wisconsin on Sunday -- was not enough for the Buckeyes Jermaine. Jeff Goodman -- team let's get the run down from foxsports.com. College basketball insider. Number five on going Purdue even with the loss at Iowa I still think the boilermakers have done enough over the course of the season. To earn a spot and that's -- five and have an outside shot to get a number one seeded they can win the Big Ten tournament. Number four Notre Dame. It's unbelievable what Mike Brey -- Hansbrough and been able to -- this year. They've they've got on the road they've beaten Pittsburgh and you can't be beat Wisconsin earlier and neutral court. They've obviously been unbeatable at all means I'll bed so I got noted David -- Kansas at number three -- I don't have the most impressive resume in the world. But they're the most talented team in the country they've done enough to crack that top three. I've got Pittsburgh and number two they're the best team in the best conference in America. He joins the big east tournament with the number one seeds. I like the Panthers in the number Jews but. And number one clearly Ohio State. Especially out in dismantling Wisconsin. I think Columbus on Sunday I think motto and the black guys are the team to be drawn into the pro series. -- Jeff thanks very much that's gonna do it for this edition of hoops hysteria will be back to break down the brackets next week on selection Sunday. For Jeff Goodman Bob Bryan Webber have a great week everybody.
