WCJB-TV in Gainesville had a problem on their hands after its local team, the Florida Gators, got a huge victory over Dayton in the NCAA tournament’s Elite Eight. CBS owns the rights to March Madness, which means that local TV stations aren’t allowed to air highlights of games until the following day.
So what to do in the meantime? Most stations use still photographs in lieu of highlights, but WCJB-TV wasn’t settling for that. Instead, the anchors rolled up their sleeves and decided to re-enact the highlights on a mini-hoop.
