During this episode we talk about what Porter had to say regarding his medical diagnoses of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), explain that this is a genetic condition in which an enlarged portion of heart can make it struggle to pump blood, and discuss how he’s coping with this recent news. Finally, we look at what his experiences had already been like so far at Ohio State, break down the latest Kenpom college basketball ratings, and discuss where Buckeyes currently sit in them.
