In an effort to deliver even more college basketball, Rothstein has partnered with Malka Sports to launch "Stuffed with Jon Rothstein" on YouTube.

"College basketball is a year round passion and this show will provide a forum for both coaches and players to regularly tell their stories in a more relaxed setting than normal. There's no better combination in life than great college basketball and great food. "Stuffed" will provide both in each and every episode."
