Dayton basketball coach Archie Miller has his team in the Sweet 16 after upsetting Ohio State and Syracuse in the NCAA tournament.

So it was a natural time for CBS to have Miller join the pregame coverage of the tournament this morning for an interview with longtime studio host Greg Gumbel.

The interview turned awkward at the end when Gumbel became confused referring to Archie Miller as Sean Miller, the head coach the Arizona Wildcats and Archie's brother.

It became even more awkward when CBS apparently had technical difficulties and chose to cut away from the segment before Gumbel could correct himself.

Hey, we all make mistakes. It certainly wasn't anything intentional or mean spirited on Gumbel's part. Just a bad time to get someone's name wrong.
