Bill Raferty Talks About Classic Call In 2009 Siena Tournament Game
CBS Broadcaster and former coach Bill Raferty is known for his trademark catchphrase “Onions” while calling college basketball games. Probably the one many remember the most is the call from the classic double overtime game between Siena and Ohio State duing the 2009 NCAA tournament when Siena’s Ronald Moore nailed a huge three pointer.
As part of a show celebrating 75 years of March Madness called “75 Years Behind The Mic” which will be shown on CBS December 29th at 2pm, Raferty discusses the classic call with Host Greg Gumbel and others. I always enjoy it when the Albany area gets some love on National Television.
