Welcome to episode 36 of the Tomahawk Nation hoops dedicated podcast. We start with a brief recap of the Pitt and Miami games. Pitt seems to be dissolving as a program after the loss, while Miami was basically a live scrimmage for the final thirty minutes. Regardless, Florida State picked up a couple of road wins, which are key, as FSU has only played five times outside the friendly confines of the Tuck.
Next we dip into the mailbag. We talk about the always debatable computer rankings over at kenpom.com. A question came in about coaching - specifically the post-Ham plan. But will Coach Hamilton ever retire? We also look ahead to the NCAA Tournament, focusing a lot on teams we may want to avoid, and a few that Florida State fans should be happy to see in their bracket.
Last, the UNC preview. How dumb was it for them to schedule a late season game vs. Marquette? (spoiler: very dumb) But they’re still a dangerous team, and they’ve evolved a bit since FSU last played them due to the emergence of freshman sharpshooter Kerwin Walton. Though this is still a huge team that looks to get it done down low.
