TNT criticized over horrible camera angle for NCAA Tournament in Boise
Fans who watched the opening round NCAA Tournament games that were held in Boise were left very frustrated over the positioning of certain television cameras inside the Taco Bell Arena.
The negative buzz began during a game between Gonzaga and UNC Greensboro that aired on TNT. For starters, it looked like the action was being filmed from the rafters. Making matters worse was that one of the baselines was painted the same color as the rim, which made the basket almost impossible to see.
Anyone in the tourney think filming a game from the roof where the baseline is the same color as the rim would be a bad idea? Just a thought. And yes my bets are losing and I’m angry pic.twitter.com/wsPVySYszK

The coverage of the game was mercilessly mocked on Twitter, to the point where you have to wonder if changes will be made going forward.

This camera angle for the UNCG v Gonzaga game is terrible. Thanks, TNT, for showing me what it’d be like for a pigeon to watch the game from the rafters.

Between the TNT camera angle and the issues the new NCAA Tournament Selection Show had on Sunday, the media coverage of March Madness is not off to the greatest start.
