In this mid-week edition of the ECB podcast, we open the show discussing the possibility of Detroit Mercy guard, Antoine Davis, breaking "Pistol" Pete Maravich's all-time NCAA scoring record. Davis enters Thursday's Horizon League Tournament quarterfinals needing only 26 points to break the record. Not everyone is happy about the long-standing record being broken and explain why we believe that's off base. Matt St.Jean of Road to the Garden stops by the show to talk Big East basketball. Matt breaks down Marquette's season to date, what makes the Golden Eagles, the Big East regular season champs, dangerous in the NCAAT, and what winning the school's first outright Big East title means for the program. Matt talks about what has made the Big East so exciting this year, the outlook of tournament teams from the conference like Providence, Xavier, UConn, and Creighton, and previews next week's Big East Tournament as he will be in MSG covering the event. Iowa embarrassed Indiana in Assembly Hall, Kansas clinched its 17th Big 12 title under Bill Self outright after beating Texas Tech and a Texas loss, Vanderbilt spoils Kentucky's Senior Night, Alabama rallies at home to complete the season sweep of rival Auburn, Tennessee beats Arkansas but loses Zakai Zeigler in the process to a torn ACL, and all the other action from the mid-week slate are covered in detail. Lastly, we look ahead to the final weekend of the regular season. The ACC title will be decided between Pittsburgh and Miami as both teams play in the finale Saturday. Kansas will travel to play a Texas team needing a win to secure the #2 seed in the Big 12 Tournament next week. SEC regular season champs, Alabama, are on the road against #2 in the SEC, Texas A&M, with the Aggies looking for NCAAT locking victory. Kentucky/Arkansas, Duke/UNC, and Michigan/Indiana are all broken down as well with tournament implications on the line for each.
