Spectrum Sports Coverage of the Ohio Basketball Final Four

I appreciate being able to watch the games, but why do they only have one camera angle? It's hard to get into the game when it feels like you are sitting in the upper deck and cant see any faces, reactions, fouls, etc. Not only that, no replays

Anyone else?





I should add, they do have two static cameras behind each backboard used during free-throws.

Terrible. Just terrible.

No reason games of this magnitude don't get the full treatment.

There have also been some fantastic shots of the back of the coach's head while being interviewed court side.

This is the first year in awhile that the semis have been televised. Hopefully the finals will see better coverage. What bothers me is their announcers. Last year they didn't know players names, cities where teams were from, even mixed up teams on some calls. They might be the same lame announcers used by Time Warner in the preceding years. Absolutely terrible.

After watching a few girls games last week and a couple boys yesterday I'm wondering if you can just call them and say "hey, I want to be a TV announcer".....they are painful. Yesterday in a 18 point game with 2 minutes left where the team that was down had clearly called it a day he said "if they want to win they have to start fouling soon"....

This lady called Solon's opponent "Pickerington High School Central." Are you kidding me?

She is correct.

Pickerington's two schools are:

Pickerington High School Central

Pickerington High School North

You fell for the trap! Yep, indeed it is Pickerington High School Central and Pickerington High School North. (It was cheaper and simpler to just put "Central" underneath the sign that said "Pickerington High School". Hope the Pickerington posters don't read this!)

It's kind of like the University of Oklahoma and how their athletic branding is "OU" (e.g. the logo.)

I had a similar problem. For quite a while, when I could not go to a live football/basketball game, I would watch a game on tv. When the tournament began, I lost channel 99. When I called, they said that channel was no longer part of my package. BS

I did not see any TV coverage but listened to the radio coverage of a couple games Saturday. Thought the radio coverage was pretty good. During the D4 game they mentioned that this was Cornerstone Christian's coach last year at the school. Mentioned the assistant was taken over next year. During the postgame they ask Marion Local player Bruns what title was better basketball or football- he said basketball because it so unexpected for Marion Local to win in basketball.
During the D3 game they talked about the issues Deer Park was having with investigations and others questioning the make up of the Deer Park team.
I doubt any of that was mentioned on TV.
The thing that gets me about the TV coverage is they usually have announcers and side line people that do not have a clue about Ohio High School Basketball- have not followed or been to a Ohio high school game.

I thought the game coverage was good. Could someone please give Harrison Sanford the boot? I thought he was going to cry at halftime of the SVSM/Trotwood game. It is a good thing Moeller won. He might have been on suicide watch today otherwise.

I give them credit for finally showing the Semis but they need to get back to being shown on FoxOhio so some ex-ohioans can watch them from out of state.

Sad to say, but even the people in Ohio can't even watch them, unless you have Spectrum TV.

All of the drama and speculation around Deer Park has shown up in various media around here in Cincinnati but I feel as though that as their state run went deeper it died down a bit and focused more on the actual basketball being played and less on residency etc. I think it is not necessary to stir the pot during the main broadcast of the game. As time goes by and if no one ever proves any wrongdoing/Deer Park receives no penalty, it will just make the broadcaster/broadcasting network look bad. Once it's said, it's out there forever, especially in this social media/YouTube era.

As far as broadcasters go, I would say you don't even need a person who is fully educated on Ohio high school basketball if they are given decent team notes. I have watched a fair amount of OU basketball games on Spectrum and the coverage teams they have used were decent enough and could handle high school. Can be a little refreshing to hear someone just share what's going on and not ramble on like Dickie V for 3 minutes after the fact.

Spectrums deal with OHSAA televises Football, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, LaCross, Swimming and Track championships. Would FoxOhio provide that extensive coverage.

FoxTexas, California do I know. Don't know about other states, Colorado covers a lot of those, as does Indian and Illinois. Even STO would get it to a lot of people.

The ratings were so bad on fox sports that they told the OHSAAthey wouldn’t air the games, even for free. OHSAA would’ve had to pay them, and that was obviously a dealbreaker, hence the crappier spectrum deal.
