Seemed like it favored duke
Well, I'm tired of seeing dozens of articles online since game ends that start Duke, Duke ,Duke and then go into a wordy rehash of what they didn't do. Not one article says anything like...TN bitch slaps and curb stomps a less talented over hyped program!
The broadcast definitely skewed toward telling Duke's story. They were routinely calling the game as "Duke is behind" or "Duke is making a run" or "Duke is answering Tennessee." On and on and on, especially in the second half. Once Tennessee really locked in that ten point lead, they started to give Tennessee some praise, but it was clear they were waiting on Duke to make their comeback - which never came. Womp womp.
You could hear Steve Van Gundy grunt when Duke missed a FT towards the end of the game. Idk if that’s rooting for Duke or rooting against Tennessee, but it’s not professional as a “non-biased” commentator.I can’t stand Bilas, or even Seth Davis. And even Hummel from Purdue. Okay I might need to admit I hold a grudge against announcers that talk bad about the VOLS
