One team is in the Big East. One team is in the Big Ten. Both teams yearn for the attention of the New York City market, want to bring big-time college basketball success back to the area. Dave of On the Banks and Norman of Rumble in the Garden cover the teams and hold a weekly (during the season) discussion on the teams' hopes, struggles, and college basketball in general as both programs work to be not half bad... and maybe, one day, "elite".
