Former UMaine men's basketball coach Dr. John Giannini joined The Morning Line after 52 of the 68 men's teams have been eliminated through the first five days of the tournament.

What has he seen from the teams still standing? Who has surprised him?

He has a former assistant still coaching in to the round of 16.

Coach G took a team to the Sweet 16, how was that preparation different from other games or was it at all?

We also found out Coach Giannini is still connected to some former players and what could be the next generation of Maine players.

And we talked about how hard it is to reach the NCAA tournament as a coach, but that pales in comparison to getting there in other ways.

We cover a lot, listen back to our conversation again here.
