Duke won an instant classic over UNC in overtime on Wednesday night, 92-90, but it was eery watching the game without Dick Vitale on the call. The decision by ESPN to bench him all made sense, though, when the game went to overtime, leading to our Fan Tweet of the Night by Professor Hyland:

Can you imagine the scene at Cameron Indoor had Dickie V walked out of the tunnel at the end of regulation to call overtime?

The Crazies would have been beside themselves. Hats of to Professor Hyland, who should probably be made the Director of Programming at ESPN for the brilliant idea. Based on the namesake I’m thinking you could teach the Worldwide Leader a lesson.
