We go deep on the matchup against Maryland, Dan Hurley’s possible beef, and how the women’s hoops team will respond to being down two coaches.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Indianapolis City Scenes Columbus Dispatch-USA TODAY Sports

On this episode of The UConn Pod, Aman and the Editors Dan are joined by men’s basketball writer Patrick Martin as we turn our attention to the men’s and women’s NCAA Tournament.

It feels great to have both UConn hoops teams thriving as we approach the start of the Big Dance. For the men’s team, we break down the end of the Big East Tournament and the upcoming matchup with Maryland... some of us are more confident than others. We also remember previous tournament teams from this decade and discuss how this year’s team compares.
