Three man booth.

John Thompson III's 200th career victory took place in front of the President of the United States, who joined Verne Lundquist and Clark Kellogg on the Duke/Georgetown broadcast during the second half.

They referenced a game Kellogg played against Craig Robinson at Madison Square Garden, a 59-55 triumph for the Buckeyes in the 1981-82 season.

That was the 59-55 game at MSG.

Anyone know the statistics of how Kellogg and Robinson actually did in that 1981 match-up? Obama seems to know a lot about basketball but he is clueless about the relative competitiveness of Penn and Princeton back then. Beting Penn or Princeton in the late 70s or early 80s was an excellent win for anyone.

I was at that game. Tigers were up by 8 at the half but were off in the 2nd half...I recall wishing tthat (in this pre-shot clock era game) they had iced the ball to start the 2nd. Alas.

kellogg was osu's top player but they had a guy named granville waiters who was called for a T for hanging on the rim. Think he played some in the nba too.

the 2nd game of the garden doubleheader was rutgers losing to michael jordan's tar heels.

Excellent memory. Looks like there were two Ts for rim-hangin'.

I thought I remembered 2 Ts but I doubted myself. The boxscore tells all.

Best seats I have ever had for a game. Front row right under the basket!

I added a link to a game story in the comments under the box score.
