This week for LMU Basketball host Jesse Kass talks to former LMU Strength Coach and Color Commentator Drew Rossi. Jesse and Drew talk about the ins and outs of being the Strength Coach of the Lions program, balancing that job with announcing as a Color Commentator, and some of their favorite moments on the mic together. The two also discuss the one call they could never forget, what it was like to watch and work with Anthony Ireland, and a very random cross country connection.
