Malcolm Smith joins our first hoop podcast

Our first high school basketball podcast of the 2012-13 season posted earlier today. To hear it, you can CLICK HERE or download it off of iTunes.

ESPN Boston High Schools editor Brendan Hall was joined by intern Chris Bradley and Boston City League coaching veteran Malcolm Smith, who coached the last seven seasons at East Boston High before stepping down this past fall to become Dean of Students at Hyde Park's New Mission High.

We discuss the crazy events of the first two weeks of the newly-aligned Boston City League, including Charlestown's surprise blowout of Brighton and the miracle buzzer-beater by Eastie's Pat Santos, whom Smith coached the previous three seasons. Santos' shot also came in at No. 1 on SportsCenters's "Top 10 Plays" earlier today.

Smith also shares with us his sleeper teams, and gives us some bold predictions for the next month of the high school basketball season.
