Appearing on live TV during one of the biggest sporting events of the year probably would frighten most 4-year-olds, but not young Philip Martelli.
The grandson of St. Joseph’s head coach Phil Martelli gave a live interview to TBS sideline reporter Allie LaForce that has become one of the most talked-about non-buzzer-beater-related moments of what has so far been a highly entertaining NCAA tournament.
Check it out in the video below.
Think Martelli's grandson was cute? Should have heard him tell me this: "I can't talk to u during a time out because I'm drawing plays" haha—

The elder Martelli’s team did not fare so well in its opening game of the tourney, though, falling to seventh-seeded UConn 89-81 in overtime.
This is what a loss at the buzzer looks like.

Remember Gerald Green’s 41-point performance a few weeks back? Here’s what it would have looked like in “NBA Jam.”
