WASHINGTON, D.C. – Former Boston University men’s basketball team captain and current Washington Wizards broadcaster Glenn Consor (’80) has been nominated for an Emmy Award by the National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The ceremony will take place on Saturday, June 25 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront.
Consor was nominated in the “Sports Analyst” category for his work with Comcast SportsNet. He just wrapped up his eighth season as the color analyst and post-game call-in show host on the Washington Wizards Radio Network. After 18 years covering the Wizards for various media outlets, most recently for Comcast SportsNet as an analyst on the network’s live postgame show, Consor added a new perspective of watching the Wizards to his resume during the 2007-08 season. Previously, from 1990-95 Consor was a scout for the Wizards franchise and Indiana Pacers.
In addition to his work with the Wizards, Consor has served as a basketball analyst for NBA-TV, ESPN’s regional college basketball broadcasts (including the Terriers’ win at Maryland in 2013), Westwood One’s coverage of the NCAA Tournament and Comcast SportsNet’s collegiate broadcasts. Consor is a fixture on MonumentalNetwork.com and provides periodic Wizards analysis for CSN as well.
A 6-foot-2 guard who played his final two seasons at BU under Naismith Hall of Famer Rick Pitino, Consor averaged 4.7 points and 3.1 assists per game as a junior to help the Terriers finish with a 17-9 record for the program’s best finish in 20 years.
Pitino named him team tri-captain the following season alongside BU Hall of Famer Steve Wright (’80) and eventual Utah Jazz draft pick Wally West (’80). Consor responded to the new honor by averaging a personal-best 10.7 ppg to help the Terriers post a 21-9 record and claim a NIT berth for BU’s first postseason appearance since 1959. Consor finished his career leading BU in assists all four seasons.
