Jim O’Connell joined Anthony Pucik and me as One on One got ready for college basketball in March.  O’Connell told us which conference he thinks is the toughest and how far Wichita State will go in this year’s national tournament.  He also told us how he has not lost all confidence in Syracuse despite their recent slide and he gave us his pick for who might be a dark horse to bust some brackets this year (here’s a hint: Fordham has played them!).

For one final time, storied rivalries will be played out at Madison Square Garden starting Tuesday night. No longer will we see overtime thrillers between Syracuse and Connecticut, or Buzz Williams yelling in the face of an official as Pittsburgh gives him the business.

On Saturday, Kenny Ducey and Steve Simineri chatted with Lenn Robbins, who covers College Hoops for the Post, and Marc Berman, the paper's Knicks Beat Writer.

Robbins previewed a great championship week ahead by discussing some bubble teams, such as Kentucky, as well as discussed the state of the Big East. Hear why he thinks the Big Ten is the NCAA's superior conference, even though the Big East is projected to have more teams in the tournament at the moment.
