Start your weekend with a snapshot of sports in the Lowcountry and beyond viewed through the prism of an ongoing pandemic. The Lowco Pod Squad of Justin Jarrett and Wes Kerr is joined by guest co-host Sean Rochester to discuss the Lowco hoops scene, the NBA "bubble," and the prospect of returning to high school sports — or not — this fall. Wes also has an interview with legendary Davidson College men's basketball coach Bob McKillop, so hoop heads will not want to miss this episode.
