NCAA College Basketball

‎Eye On College Basketball Podcast on Apple Podcasts


CBS Sports’ official college basketball podcast is the most entertaining and informative of its kind. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander bring the sport into your ears three times per week with commentary, reporting, insider information and statistical analysis throughout college basketball all year long.

  1. 06/29: Emoni Bates—WAY ahead of schedule—announces his intention to play for Michigan State. And we think he will. 06/29: Emoni Bates—WAY ahead of schedule—announces his intention to play for Michigan State. And we think he will.

    For the second straight Monday, a No. 1-rated basketball recruit has proven skeptics wrong and announced a commitment to playing college basketball over more lucrative alternatives. On Monday, Emoni Bates made his choice to play for Michigan State, if and when he’s eligible to do so. Bates is in the class of 2022 and has made no clear intention of reclassifying to 2021. Bates, 16, regarded as one of the two or three best prospects this century. Will he wind up playing for Tom Izzo? Norlander and Parrish both say yes and present the evidence and indications as to why. The second half of the pod is dedicated to the Big East and UConn (28:00), a reunion which will become official on Wednesday. With UConn going to the Big East, the guys power-rank every program, 1 through 11, and project the hierarchy of the league over the next five seasons.

    06/24: Cade Cunningham sticking with Oklahoma State is an abnormally loyal player decision that deserves huge praise

    Big-time college hoops news got the week going on Monday. No. 1-rated 2020 recruit Cade Cunningham announced he will stay at Oklahoma State for next season, despite the 2021 postseason ban the NCAA handed the school. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander open the podcast with perspective and reaction, then get into the Big East’s 21 minority assistants coming together to rally for social justice (24:00), led by their goal to get Black Lives Matter patches on uniforms for all of next season. And what about Luka Garza (41:00)? Parrish caught up with him last week. Norlander poses a question: has college basketball ever had a player facing the scenario Garza is right now? Listen in to understand — then stick around at the end for another Trivia Time! and a 90-degree day.

  4. 06/11: Zion Williamson’s ex-agent is hell-bent on trying to expose Zion, Nike and Duke

    06/11: Zion Williamson’s ex-agent is hell-bent on trying to expose Zion, Nike and Duke

    If you thought the countersuit against Zion Williamson would fade away, you’d be wrong. This week, attorneys representing Gina Ford, Williamson’s ex-agent, filed a new suit for consideration and cited text-message evidence and allegations regarding a wealthy home, and multiple luxury vehicles, both tied to the Williamson family during his time at Duke. Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander spend the first half this podcast discussing the matter. Then they turn to Norlander’s story from this week about new head coaches adjusting to the job during pandemic (33:00) and move on to top-rated prospect Jonathan Kuminga (52:00), who is expected to announce next week a reclassification to the class of 2020, plus the implied likelihood he heads for the G League. Also, just a brutal Trivia Time! showing by Norlander wraps the pod.

  6. 06/04: How the killing of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests have created a positive stir for change in college basketball

    06/04: How the killing of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests have created a positive stir for change in college basketball

    A tragedy in Minneapolis — the murder of George Floyd by a white police officer — has catalyzed and sparked worldwide protest efforts to weed out systemic racism. College basketball and its leaders can be agents for true, overdue change in this country. Today’s podcast focuses on the conversations Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander have had with coaches and players in college basketball this week. They touch on first-hand accounts from black coaches and the systemic racism they’ve encountered at the hands of law enforcement in the past. Parrish wrote this week about Rhode Island coach David Cox. In New Mexico, a team came together to protest peacefully. Norlander at one point references this story, first published at CBS Sports in 2016, where coaches shared their stories of encounters with law enforcement. There is also a movement afoot, sparked by Georgia Tech assistant Eric Reveno (31:00), who tweeted earlier this week that the NCAA should make November’s Election Day a mandatory day off for all of college athletics in order to afford players and coaches alike the opportunity and time to vote

Cousin Greg

Big fan of the show, long time listener, never miss an episode.

But gentlemen, we need to address the fact that you’ve talked about Succession on multiple episodes, but have yet to mention cousin Greg?? He’s like the Terry Teagle of the show, aka The Legend… I’ll be listening next week, hoping for Greg to get his due.

Thanks for the great content, it’s been great during the quarantine.
