Behavioral Psychologist Thomas Gilovich and Former UMass Player Brittany Collens

On this week's episode, host Jon Wertheim talks with two guests. First, Thomas Gilovich, the chair of psychology at Cornell University and a leading behavioral economist, discusses the theory on why we don't mind when tennis players win lots of titles but we don't feel the same way with teams. Gilovich also explains some of his other work and theories related to sports. Next, Wertheim speaks with former UMass tennis player Brittany Collens to explain why the NCAA is stripping the UMass women's tennis team of three years of victories over the improper reimbursement of $252 for a dorm room phone line.
