With the NBA Playoffs on the horizon, co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz start off today’s episode of The GIST of It chatting through the all-important NBA Play-In Tournament, which tips off tonight. Teams will battle for a final shot at making the postseason, meaning everything’s on the line for these ballers.

Then after the break, the gals dig through a trio of WTF stories about abusive coaches that have grabbed headlines over the last few days. From international soccer pitches to college fields and pools, these athletes deserve better.
