Jeff Van Gundy and Mike Breen to Work NCAA Games in November

Hey, the NBA commentators need to stay busy during this mess, too. According to ESPN, a few guys who previously worked pro ball games will be helping out with the college hoops telecasts:

New to College Hoops this Season:

—Mike Tirico, One of ESPN’s versatile commentators and the voice of Monday Night Football will work the weekly Big Ten Super Tuesday game with second-year analyst Dan Dakich.

—Mike Breen, Primary voice of ESPN’s NBA game telecasts will call select non-conference games in November. He will begin with Duke’s first two games of the season as head coach Mike Krzyzewski attempts to tie the Division I men’s all-time wins record on November 11 (Belmont at 9 p.m. ET on ESPNU) and November 12  (Presbyterian at 4:30 p.m. on ESPNU). He will work with analyst Doris Burke on both telecasts.

—Jeff Van Gundy, ESPN’s lead NBA game analyst will work select non-conference games in November, including Rhode Island at Texas in the TicketCity Legends Classic with Breen on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 4 p.m. on ESPN and ESPN3.

    I don’t really care about how well versed they are in college basketball, I really don’t. I loved when Chuck and the crew did March Madness for TBS, its just cats who really know ball talking about ball. Van Gundy is a great talent evaluator, he’ll be cool to listen to

    Yes.we.did, what is wrong with you? Van Gundy is a king on the (commentating) mic. Granted he won’t be as funny without Mark Jackson to bounce off… Who would u prefer? Kevin Harlan’s punk a$$ ?!?!??

    Yeah, don’t know what ya’ll talkin about, Van Gundy is a god at color commentating. He’s much more suited for the pros, but he’s the only announcer I could imagine ripping on the college game/players.

    “Ray Allen shouldn’t even have to shoot free throws, they should just be automatically counted. Kind of like field goals in football within 50 yards. They never miss. Just give em the three points.”

    LMAO….obviously paraphrased but I lost it when he said that.

    Van Gundy is good, but having Mark there makes him way better. I just hate Mike Breen with a passion, he sucks.
