I should note that Katie Smith is already in a Hall of Fame. Well, several. She's already in Ohio State's Hall of Fame, the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, and if Logan High School has a Hall of Fame, she's probably got her own wing.
But as the greatest Ohio State women's basketball player in history, one of the most decorated Olympian basketball players, period, and the owner of a legendary professional career, it's high time that she gets into Naismith Hall of Fame. She's a finalist this year, and it's hard to think of someone more deserving or with a better resume (which she just added to as the new head coach of the New York Liberty!).
Katie Smith is also a pretty great interview! We get into her journey to Ohio State, her love of the college game, and what it's like to be an Olympian. Plus, Ask Us Anything (which you can do via Twitter or e-mail) takes us into some Phantom Thread-esque places, and we look at how Ohio State men's basketball can turn around a late-season swoon of sorts. It's a big one, and if you liked it, you can rate and subscribe to us on iTunes.

31:58 Ask Us Anything! I'm a big fan of Bengal couture, to be completely honest.
And that'll do it. As always, thanks to you for listening and to Travis for our cool, cool logo. Go ahead and check out the Dry Goods store while you wait for another Dubcast to drop, and we'll see you next week!
