I Miss the Basketball Coverage of Twenty Years Ago

Tar Heel Fan pointed to this clip from the broadcast of the last UNC-Oklahoma tournament game, complete with post-game interviews:

What strikes me about the clip, aside from the stellar play from Rick Fox, is the length of time after the game given to Billy Packer to interview Dean Smith and the quality of said interview. Packer and Smith just don't go with "Rick Fox played well, didn't he?" but get into strategy and how Smith adjusted to Scott Williams and George Lynch going out early. It's really pretty fascinating.

Also note how half the OU defense collapses onto Hubert Davis expecting a three-point attempt, leaving Fox open on the wing. Much better than recent endgame situations.
