In honor of the Final Fours (both men's and women's college basketball) this weekend, we're pleased to have Dr. Mike Thornton with us in the podcast this week to talk about refereeing college basketball. For the past several weeks, we've all enjoyed March Madness and the attention that College Basketball gets during this time of the year. The one group of involved folks that we don't normally hear from are the Basketball Referees. Given the important role they play in the game and the recent media attention focused on referees, we thought it would be great to hear from a Division I College Basketball Referee. Dr. Thornton has officiated Division 1 basketball for several years and brings a great perspective on watching basketball (and gives some suggestions on how to properly heckle referees!)...This is a timely and fun conversation.
