Laquita Thomas on Hansbrough's sportsmanship.
A reader who saw our list of all-time ACC basketball coaches based on their records in close games asked us to make a list based on overtime records only. So here it is.
We've started our own little basketball tournament, with a field of 32 college basketball broadcasters that you'll eventually narrow down to a champion on April 6, the day of the NCAA championship game. The field is broken into four "regionals" — play-by-play announcers, color commentators, studio hosts and analysts, and the best of the rest. You can find it here.
Since we decided to start with a field of 32, we had to leave out some announcers, you ought to weigh in on that if you disagree with any of the picks. The first vote involves picking four out of each group of eight.
My picks: play-by-play — Nantz, Enberg, Shulman, Johnson: color commentators — Bilas, Gminski, Elmore and Bonner; studio hosts and analysts — Rece Davis, Seth Davis, Knight and Gottlieb; best of the rest — Burke, Kellogg, Lundquist and McDonough.
I like Dickie V's passion and fun factor, but I prefer the more serious analysts who are more inclined to make a point I hadn't thought of, though I doubt any one of these folks is liable to openly challenge the NCAA or the college sports industry on anything.
