On this week’s edition of Live from West End, Lead Sports Analyst Brandon Karp joins Sports Editor Bryce Smith and Deputy Sports Editor Aiden Rutman for a check-in for both men’s and women’s Basketball. The trio recaps the men’s huge road victory against Georgia, as well as their loss against No. 4 Alabama. They debrief what the team will look like without Liam Robbins and Lee Dort to man the center position. The crew also discusses the women’s heartbreaking loss to Arkansas and not-so-heartbreaking loss to No. 1 South Carolina. They finish with a look ahead to this week’s upcoming matchups, with the men taking on Kentucky at home, and the women taking on Texas A&M at home.
