Commissioner irate over CBS blackout
ST. LOUIS – The commissioner of the Missouri Valley Conference says he would rather have the tournament title game televised on the Food Network if CBS can’t guarantee it will televise the entire game nationally.
Doug Elgin told The Associated Press on Monday that central and northern Illinois and all of Indiana didn’t see the conclusion of Creighton’s 68-65 nail-biter over Wichita State. Wichita State shaved a 13-point deficit to one in the final minute, and Malcolm Armstead missed a potential tying 3-pointer just before the buzzer Sunday.
“They’ll never be able to make this up to us,” said Elgin, adding the conference had received “hundreds” of complaints from irate fans. “Our concern is our most important game of the year carries nationally – all of it. That’s certainly what we bargained for.”
