Rick and John talk NCAA Basketball on The Midday Show with 92-9 The Game's college basketball insider DeShaun Tate. 

Right out of the gate, Rick wants to know what's up with Zion Williamson of Duke, who hasn't played since injuring his ankle after his Nike shoe blew out. Nothing is a given for Duke, regardless of Zion being available. Even missing numerous games, is Zion still deserving of Player of the Year? Tate thinks it's 'no contest.' Duke looks completely different without Zion and the affect he has on both teams is amazing.

As far as the seeding goes for March Madness, Tate thinks Virginia and Gonzaga are guaranteed 1 seeds, but you still have to see what happens in the SEC Tournament (UT, LSU and Kentucky). Tate says that while Virginia may not have the best talent, they are the best overall team going into the tournament. Rick is skeptical about UVA. Tate believes Virginia has more depth on the bench and thinks they are good enough to win it all.
