This was the season that Pat Chambers, his staff, and program had been building towards for literally the better part of the last decade. They were a ranked within the top ten programs in the country at one point this winter and a virtual lock to hear their name called on Selection Sunday.

In this conversation, we explore into the process of one of college basketball’s most notable rebuilding efforts in recent years – the patience that was required, the unique recruiting philosophy, and the gradual linear progression that led to this year.
We also explore the coach behind it all – his habits, routines, books, and what he’s doing with this new, unprecedented time.
