The Jason McIntyre Show: Jay Bilas on College Basketball and Paying College Athletes


* Among the best players he’s seen this summer: Noah Vonleh (Indiana), Jahii Carson (Arizona State), Markel Brown (Oklahoma State)
* We talk about Russ Smith and the perceived snub by me ranking him the 26th best player in the country
* Jay Bilas really likes Aaron Craft. Bilas talks at length about Craft’s incredible defense
* How’d I do with Villanova’s Arch? Bilas had some thoughts on that, which I won’t spoil
* Two transfers to watch next season: Rodney Hood (Duke) and Dorian Finney-Smith (Florida)
* Bill Raftery stories. You’ll like ’em. He compares Fox stealing Raftery to Fox stealing John Madden back in the day
* The college athletes deserve more than a scholarship. We agreed on this topic, so I was pretty quiet while Bilas went for a solid 10 minutes
* Bilas on Mark Emmert: “I like him personally, but I don’t think he’s done a very good job.”
