CBS Sports has named Bill Raftery and Grant Hill as the color analysts for the 2015 Final Four after Greg Anthony was arrested for soliciting a prostitute and Steve Kerr was named the head coach of the Golden State Warriors.

Raftery and Hill will be joining play-by-play man Jim Nantz and sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson on the call.

Raftery, 71, will be calling his 33rd NCAA Tournament this season and first Final Four. He’s known for his famous catchphrase, “Onions,” opening the broadcast by saying what defense the team is in and for saying, “Send it in, Jerome” after Pittsburgh’s Jerome Lane’s monster dunk that broke the backboard in 1988.

Watch Raftery’s best calls:

Hill, 42, is in his second season as a broadcaster. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have any famous catchphrases yet, but he was involved with one of the most famous plays in NCAA tournament so he has that him going for him.


The only thing that will make this booth better is if the great Bill Walton joins it.
