Florida TV station gets creative with Elite Eight highlights

The NCAA is known for having an abundance of seemingly pointless rules. But while those are often blindly criticized or mocked, seldom does someone find a fun — but legal — way to circumvent them.

A Florida TV station put together a pretty impressive attempt at recapping the Florida Gators’ Elite Eight win over the Dayton Flyers despite broadcast restrictions on showing game highlights.

Video highlights aren’t available for broadcast by non-CBS stations until the day after the game during the NCAA Tournament, and WCJB-TV in Gainesville isn’t a CBS affiliate. But anchor Zach Aldridge didn’t want to go without video while covering such a big story.

So what did he do? Team up with a few coworkers and stage a two-on-two basketball game, of course!
