Tonight's 'Journey' focuses on point guards
At 10 p.m. ET tonight, “The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2013” spotlights the Big Ten’s top point guards. The show airs immediately following the Wisconsin-Iowa game, and then airs again at 3 p.m. Sunday following the Indiana-Northwestern game and again at 8 p.m. Sunday.
The point guards featured include Trey Burke, Aaron Craft, Tim Frazier and Andre Hollins. Read more about the show in this post.
Here’s what you can expect on the show:
We profile Michigan’s Trey Burke, who discusses how returning to school for his sophomore year has made him a better player. Also, we talk to Burke about looking forward to playing in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio last Sunday.
We also spotlight Ohio State’s Aaron Craft, a one-time AAU teammate of Burke, who has become one of the faces of Ohio State athletics as a result of his academic and athletic excellence.
We travel to Penn State to visit injured Penn State point guard Tim Frazier and explore how he has embraced the role of player-coach while helping his teammate D.J. Newbill run the Nittany Lions offense.
We also visit Minnesota and talk to Andre Hollins about why he turned down Stanford and Harvard to play on a bigger basketball stage where Tubby Smith now trusts Hollins him to run the team and occasionally call his own plays.
