After Heartfire defeated Bleed Green to take home a $1 Million prize, Tupelo Honey wrapped its 63rd game on the networks of ESPN in just 15 days. The tenth installment of The Basketball Tournament (TBT) was its biggest yet and allowed our team to highlight the versatility and stability of our Indianapolis REMI facility.

TBT is a winner-take-all basketball tournament where every contest ends on a made shot thanks to its innovative Elam ending. In an open, single-elimination tournament, every game matters. Tupelo works to capture that passion in our coverage, offering unique access inside huddles and with mic’d officials.

Over the roughly two-week event, Tupelo’s engineers managed remote audio and video feeds from six on-site mobile units moving between eight regional sites. Games were produced utilizing three control rooms in Indianapolis. Ten on-air talent and more than 150 individual crew members contributed to the effort. Despite being a REMI, 124 people worked outside of the Indianapolis facility!

Tupelo is incredibly proud of the relationship we have built with the TBT team, which dates to the first event in 2014 and we can’t wait for 2024.
