The B/B Podcast - Louisville Cuts Down the Nets, Rice Gets the Ax and Carmelo Steps Up His Game

By - Kris Fletcher & Tim Swift

In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we recap the NCAA Men's National Championship Game between the Louisville Cardinals and Michigan Wolverines, discuss the controversy surrounding Rutgers University and former men's basketball coach Mike Rice, and break down how Carmelo Anthony has the New York Knicks peaking just in time for the postseason!

- Cardinals Roll in Atlanta: On Monday night, Rick Pitino's squad outlasted a very game Michigan team en route to the school's third national championship. How did Louisville pull it off, and what does the win mean for Pitino's coaching legacy? Hear our take.

- Rice Out at Rutgers: Last week, video surfaced of men's basketball coach Mike Rice berating, pushing, kicking, cursing and throwing basketballs at his players. He has since been fired, but in way, that was just the beginning of the story. We discuss how the university failed its student-athletes, and whether or not more heads should roll as a result of the controversy.

- Melo and the Red-Hot Knicks: Carmelo Anthony has been on fire of late, leading the Knicks to 12-consecutive wins in the process. What is New York doing that has them playing winning basketball, and what chance do they have of knocking off LeBron and the Heat if the teams meet in the playoffs? Our answers may surprise you.


We share our thoughts on a report that was published last week alleging Auburn's football program paid players and altered grades during the 2010 national championship season, and what Robinson Cano's decision to leave Scott Boras and sign with Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports means to the New York Yankees!

All this and much more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
