Auburn's Controversial Foul? NCAA Title Game Preview. Nets & Potential NBA Seedings, Islanders/NHL Playoff Overview, MLB's First Ten Days

I have a full smorgasbord of sports to whet your appetite on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. We’re now down to two. The Final Four was overcome with controversy as the Auburn Tigers was thisclose to making their first trip to the Championship Game. Was it a foul? Should have it been called? I’ll be sure to delve into those final 0.6 seconds vs. Virginia which changed the trajectory of the Final Four, Texas Tech’s mild upset over Michigan State and a preview of what lies ahead for tonights’ winner take all matchup. The NBA is about to embark on another postseason, but there are still a couple of games to be played. The Brooklyn Nets have punched their ticket to the playoffs, but their seed isn’t set in stone. I’ll get into both races in the East and West as the bottom of the playoff seedings in each conference have yet to be determined. On the other hand, the NHL playoffs are set. The Islanders will host the first round since 1984 against the battle tested Penguins. What are their chances to move onto the next round? Who is the biggest X-factor of this series? It may not be who you think, so you’ll have to listen to find out. I’ll also reveal the main headlines leading the chase for Lord Stanley’s Cup, with the Tampa Bay Lightning at the forefront of being one of the all time great teams with a potential championship in their sight. There’s some baseball to talk about. Not just the week that was for the Mets and Yankees, but the Orioles Chris Davis’s plight, the cold Cubs & Red Sox and the white hot Mariners, Dodgers and Mike Trout’s torrid HR streak. Plus, the Jets new uniform reveal, Antonio Brown is in the news again and the Masters are just days away. Chock full of sports talk to fill your headphones on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 63)
