Twenty-six wins, a conference championship and a fanbase that includes actor Bill Murray still doesn’t earn the College of Charleston basketball team any respect with ESPN.
After the Cougars’ 83-76 win over Northeastern in the Colonial Athletic Association’s championship game Tuesday night, ESPN displayed a graphic that included all the teams that had already qualified for the NCAA Tournament.
There was only one problem with the graphic — the logo that ESPN used for College of Charleston was actually Charleston Southern’s logo.
The College of Charleston’s official Twitter account pointed out the mistake to the World Wide Leader in Sports in a tweet: ‘Hey @ESPN: Hit us up if you need some hi-res images of our @CofCSports logos.’
With more teams qualifying for the Big Dance, College of Charleston officials are hopeful that ESPN will get it right next time.
CBS Sports wasn't any better.
Despite televising Tuesday night's CAA championship game, CBS Sports in a promo had a Charleston Southern player in its graphic instead of one from College of Charleston.
