Unlike Florida Atlantic and San Diego State, which hit nearly every three-pointer they hoisted up in the first half of their Final Four showdown, Grant Hill came up short with perhaps the simplest shot taken over the first twenty minutes.
The two-time NCAA champion, who starred in his time with Duke before a career in the NBA, struggled to nail a 12-foot putt during the first half of the Final Four showdown between the Owls and the Aztecs. CBS play-by-play man Jim Nantz provided the commentary for the pressure-laced putt and delivered with yet another call for the ages.
After blowing the simple putt during a timeout, Hill blamed hearing Nantz calling the birdie attempt in his ear.
“I got nervous hearing your voice, c’mon now,” Hill said with a laugh.
Add another memorable highlight to Nantz’s legendary career at the Final Four. However, this hilarious one will not be one Hill would like to see re-aired.
