When Team USA’s Men’s Basketball team takes the court in Rio this summer, the games (and the gold medal game) will be called by the All-Star trio of Marv Albert, Craig Sager, and Doug Collins.
But for the coverage of the women’s teams, who have won gold at the last five Olympic games, the Team USA matchups and the gold medal game will be called by CSN Philly and the Sixers’ own Marc Zumoff. Zoom will be joined by 1976 U.S. Olympian Ann Meyers as the analyst and sideline reporter Ros Gold-Onwude who works Golden State Warriors games. It’s Zumoff’s Olympic debut, and I can’t wait to hear “Team USA is trying to lock all windows and doors” without it being followed by a chuckle or useless comment from Alaa Abdelnaby.
The Rio Games begin August 5th. And the Flyers-Caps series, thankfully, beings on Thursday. Tiiiiick, tooooock.
