Is Marvin Bagley the Next Big Thing for Duke?

Sam Vecenie sits down with Scott Phillips from over at NBC Sports about the Marvin Bagley commitment. What makes him a better prospect than Michael Porter Jr.? What effect does he have on Duke? What should Duke fans be worried about? Should they be the No. 1 in the preseason top-25?  Should Arizona and DeAndre Ayton be considered at the #1 spot? Should Michigan State be considered? What about Kansas and Villanova? Finally, they chat about the fallout for the Class of 2018. Is R.J. Barrett clearly the No. 1 player? Who is No. 2? The rest of the top-five? Tough calls all around.  Thank you for listening, please remember to rate, review and subscribe to the podcast. You can follow Scott at @phillipshoops, and Sam at @Sam_Vecenie.

In this episode, Sam answers all of your questions from earlier on Thursday. But before they get into that, he chats with Reags from over at Barstool about two important topics. The first: say you are a head coach of a Division I program and have access to any three coaches in the country to be your assistants. Who would you pick and why? They share their five favorite basketball movies ever (non-documentary edition), and discuss how basketball has really gotten the short end of the stick over the years in Hollywood by breaking down their favorite movies from other sports.  Finally, they answer your questions. Lot of talk about the Big East. Do they think Derrick Rose is a fit in Cleveland (or anywhere)? How does Markelle Fultz rank within the last decade of prospects? Who is the most underrated college basketball player at the low/mid/high-major levels? All that and more in this episode.  Please remember to rate, review, and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.

The Best Transfers in College Basketball

Then, they chat about the best transfers on the market, including Dedric and K.J. Lawson, Cam Johnson, Carlton Bragg, Chase Jeter, Marcus Evans, and others.
