NBC reveals play-by-play voice for Team USA basketball at Paris Olympics

Must read

NBC Sports announced on Wednesday that Big Ten announcer Noah Eagle will call play-by-play for Team USA basketball at the Paris Olympics this summer. The action kicks off in 100 days and NBC Sports is broadcasting Team USA games across their platforms, including NBC, Peacock and USA Network.

“I’m honored to be a part of the coverage for Team USA’s pursuit of gold on the hardwood. Both the men’s and women’s sides are loaded with star power and some of the most elite coaches the sport has ever seen,” Eagle said. “With the incredible NBC Olympic team alongside, I can’t wait for that first game to tip off.”

In the coming weeks, the network will announce the analysts and reporters for the Team USA games. Calling play-by-play for Team USA basketball is Eagle’s second NBC Olympics assignment. He called 3×3 basketball for NBC at the Tokyo Olympics. This past NBA season, he called select Brooklyn Nets games for YES Network and previously served as the radio voice of the Los Angeles Clippers for four seasons.

“Noah has excelled on many high-profile events, including as our lead Big Ten voice, and NBA and college basketball games. We are excited to hear him call Team USA’s quest for gold in both the men’s and women’s tournaments this summer,” said Rebecca Chatman, Vice President and Coordinating Producer, NBC Olympics Production.
