Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score!
This week, we begin the show with the breaking news of a major coaching change in Cleveland, as the Cavs fire David Blatt and promote assistant Tyronn Lue to turn things around. Then, we preview and predict today’s NFL conference championship games. Finally, our panel takes a long look at the season so far in men’s college basketball, including picks for best starting five, conference winners and tournament seeds.
All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.
