Episode details

Florida Atlantic play-by-play announcer and Valparaiso graduate Ken LaVicka (‘06) joins The Victory Bell: The Podcast to discuss FAU’s dream run to the Final Four.

LaVicka shares stories of cutting his broadcast teeth at WVUR and how those experiences helped prepare him for when his broadcast dropped with 18.6 seconds left in last weekend’s Elite Eight game against Kansas State.

LaVicka and FAU isn’t the only story taking place at the Final Four this weekend. Valparaiso has an opening atop the men’s basketball program and athletic director Charles Small will be in Houston taking meetings and leading interviews. TVB host Paul Oren touches on Small and Lottich as well as the news that Ben Krikke has hit the portal.

A reminder that all TVB: The Podcast episodes are free to all listeners. For more information on the Valpo coaching search, please subscribe to TheVictoryBell.com.
