Weekly Program Delves Deep into College Basketball
The third season of ESPNU’s weekly Katz Korner men’s college basketball show will make its season debut Tuesday, Jan. 20, at 1 p.m. The three-hour program hosted by veteran ESPN basketball reporter Andy Katz provides an all-encompassing look at the college basketball landscape. The ESPNU show will air every Tuesday at 1 p.m. throughout the college basketball season.
Each week, Katz will interview coaches and players. Highlighting Tuesday’s season premiere are interviews with head coaches Tony Bennett (Virginia) and Scott Drew (Baylor). Gonzaga guard Kevin Pangos will also join the show.
Other weekly elements include:
- Journey to the Tourney: Bracketologist Joe Lunardi elaborates on his NCAA Tournament projection and provides a report on mid-major programs
- Coaches’ Film: ESPNU’s college basketball analysts join Katz to evaluate game tapes
- Wooden Award: An update on the top players around the nation who are vying for the College Basketball Player of the Year award;
- Roundtable Discussion: A dialogue on hot-button topics
Katz joined ESPN.com in 1999 as the national college basketball writer. While still contributing regularly for ESPN.com, his role on-air has continued to grow over the last 15 years, which now includes hosting Emmy and Murrow-award winning Outside the Lines series when Bob Ley is unavailable and Katz Korner. Additionally, he co-hosts two podcast, Capital Games with ABC News’ Political Director Rick Klein, and ESPNU College Basketball with Seth Greenberg.
