It’s an exciting time for fans of Columbia Cougars basketball…not just with the men’s team, (who by the way are 33-0 and ranked number one in the nation), but women’s basketball is heading down to Frankfurt, Kentucky as a #4 seed in the NAIA Division I National Tournament.
Bob Burchard is not only the men’s basketball coach, but also the athletic director. He joins us on this Pressbox Podcast to talk about the success of both programs and how he’s handled dealing with a perfect season with his players.
It may sound boring, but all teams approach a season by taking it “one game at a time.” How many times have we heard that? It’s true and Burchard hasn’t gotten wrapped up in the 33 straight wins, but more on the process of getting his team better each game.
He admits he can’t grasp how the team has gotten this far without a loss. You’ll hear Bob explain how there are four potential outcomes to each basketball game. When you hear Bob lay out the different scenarios, it makes any win streak sound amazing.
