The NCAA doesn’t allow news organizations to show highlights of March Madness tournament games until all of the games are over for the evening. That can really put a crimp in your sports reporting, especially if you’re in a college-basketball-crazy market like the North Carolina Triangle region, where Duke, UNC, and NC State are.
NBC17 and Penn Holderness found a way around it, though. They’re re-enacting highlights from games using dolls. For example, here’s the Duke/Belmont game from Friday night.
That’s not the best one, though. The best one is the one they did last night for the UNC/Mount St. Mary’s game, in which the Mount St. Mary’s players are represented by Care Bears.
