COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Mountain West Conference announced today the 2006-07 women's basketball broadcast schedule that will include 32 games on national and regional television, nearly three times the coverage in 2005-06.
The Lady Frogs are scheduled to play in front of a television audience for five games, including home contests against Florida (Dec. 8) and New Mexico (Jan. 24). TCU will hit the road for televised contests at Utah (Jan. 18), BYU (Feb. 1) and New Mexico (Feb. 25). In addition, all games for the 2007 MWC Women's Basketball Championship will be televised.
Twenty-five games will be shown on the Mountain West Sports Network - the mtn., with seven games to be broadcast live nationally on CSTV: College Sports Television. A total of 15 conference match ups will be televised on the mtn.
The television schedule tips off Friday, Nov. 10, with BYU hosting Idaho State in the first round of the WNIT and Pepperdine visiting UNLV, Sunday, Nov. 12. Conference play begins Wednesday, Jan. 3, with UNLV facing TCU in Fort Worth, Texas.
Today's television announcement reflects the new partnership between CSTV Networks and Comcast for ownership and distribution of the mtn. - MountainWest Sports Network. The mtn. is the first ever 24-hour sports network devoted exclusively to a single conference. The mtn. will not only broadcast live games, but will air a variety of studio shows, including pre and post-game shows, which break down MWC games, look ahead to the big games on the horizon and feature extensive game highlights.
