Former University of Kentucky basketball player Rex Chapman will join Dave Baker and Michael Eaves on Turner Sports' "homer" broadcast of Saturday's Kentucky-Wisconsin game in the NCAA men's basketball Final Four.
The game's primary broadcast from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis will be on TBS at about 8:49 p.m. Jim Nantz, Grant Hill and Bill Raftery will call the action.
Each team in the Final Four will also be represented by a broadcast trio that will focus its attentions on their squad.
Kentucky's "homer" broadcast will be shown on TNT.
Longtime Lexington sportscaster Dave Baker, who was the Kentucky sideline reporter last year, moves into the play-by-play role. He and Chapman will team with Michael Eaves, a UK alumnus and former Lexington sports anchor who now works for Al Jazeera America. Rob Bromley of WKYT handled the UK play-by-play on last year's debut of the "Team Stream" broadcast, alongside Baker and Chapman.
The Wisconsin-focused broadcast will be shown on TruTV, with play-by-play man Wayne Larrivee, analyst Mike Kelley and sideline reporter Phil Dawson.
