Thanks for listening to this free podcast from the Blue Ribbon Report.

In Thursday’s long-form edition for paid subscribers, Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook contributing editor Lindsey Willhite profiles only the second female assistant coach in Division I basketball, Loyola Marymount’s Corin “Tiny” Adams. Her master’s degree in journalism was one reason Loyola coach Tavaras Hardy hired her; he thought Adams could use those skills to help tell the program’s story.

Also, Blue Ribbon’s 2020-21 All-America teams will be announced. You already know Iowa Luka Garza is our preseason national player of the year. Now you’ll get to see who we picked for national newcomer of the year and all four of our preseason All-America teams.
