In Episode 38, I catch up with Colorado State head coach Niko Medved about his team that was supposed to be a year away.
But the Rams didn’t seem to agree and have managed to put themselves right in the middle of the Mountain West title race this season — a year ahead of schedule, or at least the schedule guys like me had for them. CSU is led by a pair of sophomore Player of the Year candidates and a roster without a senior.
Medved, who was an assistant at CSU from 2007-2013, recalls in this episode one painful Lobo memory in Moby Arena — Kendall Williams’ 46 point game with 10 made 3-pointers that pretty much clinched the 2013 MWC title for UNM with a couple weeks still to play.
This year’s CSU team is flirting with being the first Rams squad since that 2013 season to get into the NCAA Tournament.
So, how’d they get there so fast? And will it last? You can listen on the embedded player above or find the podcast at any of the links below.
