Mike Everitt

Controversy aside about the four ejections in Detroit tonight, the fact according to Katie Strang of ESPN that he wouldn't allow radio in his post-game interview is unacceptable. Reminds me when John...

I do not understand what the big deal is about coaches calling timeouts. It doesn't add any time to the game.

I'm trying to remember the last Final Four game decided on a game ending buzzer beater. Nantz has done 75 Final Four games and I do not think he has ever had one of those.

I know it wasn't a college arena, but even in college arenas, when the shot clock goes off you can barely hear it on TV. The same for tonight as well. In an NBA arena, you can always hear the shot...
