Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score !
This week, we recap the action of NCAA’s March Madness leading up to today’s Final Four teams being decided. Next, we discuss the pros of the hardwood as the Spurs & Warriors faced off, there’s a tough battle for third place in the Eastern Conference, and Lebron continues to speak in codes. Finally, a discussion of tennis and the unfortunate comments by Indian Wells‘ CEO which led to his eventual ouster.
All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.
Panelists this week are Russell Hainline (@RussellHFilm) & returning guest Tyrone (@tydigga1).
