Tonight we were joined on the program by Spring Valley head basketball coach Perry Dozier.

Dozier joined us via phone from Chicago where here his son, P.J., will be playing in the McDonald’s All-Star game Wednesday night.

Last night P.J. performed in the skills competition, showcasing his skills in the slam dunk contest.  Father provided his thoughts on his son’s performance last night in the skills competition, and also previewed tomorrow night’s action in the game, where P.J. will suit up for the West squad.

Finally, we couldn’t let coach go without getting his thoughts on his daughter, Asia, who knocked down the final 4 free-throws in Sunday’s Elite 8 matchup with Florida State, helping to seal the deal against the Seminoles and send the Gamecocks to the Final Four.

Every Tuesday we like to talk a little racing with the guy who is in charge of making sure that the Lady in Black is up and running, Darlington President Chip Wile.

Denny Hamlin took the checkered flag in Martinsville.  We review the race with Chip and also discuss the Toyota team’s representing themselves well Sunday, having three teams finish in the top 5.

NASCAR is also deducting 75 Points from Ryan Newman, suspended the 31 team’s crew chief for 6 races, and fined the team $125,000.  Chip provides us his insight into the infractions.

Tuesday night we were joined once again by USC golf coach Bill McDonald.  He’s seemingly becoming quite the mainstay on the program, since he’s joined us  following every Win.

Well, the wins have been abundant this season. His Gamecock squad, which is currently ranked 5th in the country, just won their school-record 5th win at the Hootie Intercollegiate at Bulls Bay Golf Club in Awendaw, South Carolina.

Tonight we broke down the Hootie win with coach and, considering the event is affiliated with Columbia’s own Hootie and the Blowfish, we talked a little music with him as well.

Monday night we were pleased to welcome back into the program USC pitching coach Jerry Meyers to analyze the Gamecocks series with Georgia over the weekend.

USC dropped the first two games of the series to the Bulldogs on Saturday, losing the first game 6-5 (a continuation of Friday night’s postponed matchup) in 11 innings, and proceeded to take the loss in Saturday’s regularly scheduled game by a score of 4-3.

The Gamecocks were able to salvage Sunday’s game, however, downing the Bulldogs 8-5.

Because of the inclement weather, the Gamecock arms were shuffled a bit.  Coach Meyers tells us which moves were because of circumstance , which could potentially be permanent, and more.
