Justin Michael catches up with Sam Masten, who started his career at Northern Colorado and will be finishing it at Northern State University. Throughout the podcast, the two discuss Sam’s stellar high school career, his recruitment process, losing the head coach that recruited him to UNC and what the transfer portal process is like for current athletes. They also talk AAU vs. high school competition, the value of teams being able to establish chemistry and continuity within a roster, and what it was like playing D1 basketball in a pandemic.
