This weekend, Sports Spectrum brings you stories and memories of NCAA men’s basketball tournaments.

Our guests include ESPN college basketball play-by-play announcer, Dave Pasch. Dave is one of the busiest broadcasters in the country. He also shares a remarkable story of coming to know Christ.

John Wooden coached the UCLA Bruins to the greatest dynasty in the history of college basketball. We visit with a member of those great Bruin teams, former center Ralph Drollinger.

We also hear from Lorenzo Romar, the head men’s basketball coach at the University of Washington. Romar took his Huskies to the NCAA Sweet 16 this season.

And Sports Spectrum chaplain Bill Crowder talks about the importance of “special days.” There are special days in sports and in life. Bill shares his perspective.

Finally, we take your comment by phone. We hear about your all-time favorite college basketball player and why he’s a favorite. Bob Roller, the director of athletics at Samford University joins us to take phone calls.

It’s college basketball, real-life issues, and faith on Sports Spectrum Saturday.
