Fellow Wolverine gets to shadow U of M basketball team

Big Tournament

ANAHEIM, Calif. (WOOD) — Charles Matthews and his teammates are not the only Wolverines getting ready for Thursday’s matchup with Texas Tech.

For most reporters, this would be a dream assignment — working on network television covering the NCAA Tournament.  For Dana Jacobson it is, but as a University of Michigan alum, in some ways it isn’t.

“It’s really funny.  Nobody believes me.  This stage, I would rather not be covering them so I could root for them.  It sounds silly but there’s something about knowing that you have to be unbiased but everybody thinks you’ll be biased where I feel like I almost go the opposite direction,” Jacobson said.

Dana Jacobsen is a CBS sideline reporter and Michigan native. She covered both the Wolverines and Spartans during the opening round of the tournament last week in Des Moines, Iowa.
