March 27 (UPI) -- A Nashville local news anchor charged with recapping the Elite Eight basketball games without NCAA clips decided to get "a little creative."

Eric Alvarez of WZTV said during a recent broadcast the NCAA would not give the station permission to use highlight clips for their sports segment, so he decided to get "a little creative."

"And, before you ask: Yes, I did make this segment with things I found lying around my desk," Alvarez said.

The clips that played during Alvarez' segment featured a makeshift hoop composed in part by a key chain ring, Lego Batman and Superman and a rubber duck.

"This is what happens when we can't show NCAA hoops highlights and @PJFOX17 and @DaveFoster17 leave me unsupervised on @FOXNashville sports," Alvarez tweeted.
