Play-by-Play on the Radio

Updated: Apr 4, 2020

As play-by-play legend Jack Buck once said, "I can't believe what I just saw!" That phrase rings true today for me as I write this blog post. It's hard to get a handle on what we are witnessing every single time we flip on the TV or look out the window or try to live our lives. The global pandemic has frozen the planet! Heck, it even stopped the college basketball season in its tracks. Who in their right mind might have imagined that scenario. Can't believe what I just saw! Can't believe. Period. I have to remind myself in the morning that we're not caught in some horrible nightmare. There are many more important things than basketball, but we sure need our diversions now more than ever. So here are some exciting play-by-play radio highlights presented in an SHU produced web series entitled "The Voyage". According to Hilltop's Dave Popkin, "it was one of the more exciting play-by-play assignments I've had for Seton Hall given the dunks, 13 three-pointers, sellout crowd and the importance of the win." That's saying a lot, because Dave has teamed with Gary Cohen for more than 500 Seton Hall radio broadcasts. The Mets play-by-play legend was on assignment for this one and Dave donned his play-by-play hat, with John Fanta providing the color. It was a great win, and a big-time milestone game for 6'11" Sandro Mamukelashvili. He scored 26 points and had his best game as a Pirate. To me, Sandro showcased his full potential, as he displayed every aspects of his game. Check the video out. It was a landmark Seton Hall win of 2020. The year March Madness never arrived or concluded. I still can't believe it.
