Controversy

On the January 31, 2008, edition of the 11 p.m. SportsCenter, while doing a highlight for a Cleveland Cavaliers game, Donyell Marshall came onto the court without his jersey on; wearing a tank top. In describing this, Verrett called Marshall's tank top a "wife beater." Verrett did apologize for his remark at the end of the show, which ended just after midnight, February 1, 2008.
