Hill and Raftery, 71, will join the team of Jim Nantz and reporter Tracy Wolfson to call games together throughout the 2015 NCAA Tournament, culminating with the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Final Four and National Championship from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. This year’s NCAA Tournament marks the first time Raftery and Hill will call the Final Four and National Championship on television.
Greg Anthony and Steve Kerr were the color commentators last year, but Anthony recently was suspended by CBS and Turner for soliciting a prostitute. He pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Kerr is now the coach of the Golden State Warriors.
The full NCAA Tournament commentator line-up will be announced at a later date.
Raftery is entering his 33rd year calling the NCAA Tournament. Hill will debut this year as a game analyst after joining the collective NCAA Tournament coverage last year as a studio analyst.
