Pirate basketball set for lights, camera, action

East Carolina's basketball team will have at least six television exposures during the 2005-06 regular season, the school announced Tuesday.

WITN-TV 7, which has an exclusive arrangement with ECU to provide over-the-air broadcasts of specified football and basketball games to the Greenville-New Bern-Washington market, will televise three hoops contests, starting with the Pirates' Dec. 3 game at Old Dominion of the Colonial Athletic Association.

An NBC affiliate, WITN will carry home games against Conference USA members Southern Methodist (Jan. 18) and Tulsa (Jan. 28.) The station will also broadcast the East Carolina women's team's home game against Tulsa on Jan. 29.

The College Sports Television Network (CSTV), which earlier this year launched a multi-year multimedia agreement with C-USA, will telecast ECU's home match-up with league powerhouse Memphis on Jan. 11 and the Pirates' conference game at Rice on Feb. 15.

CSTV's programming is distributed via satellite giants Dish Network and DirecTV and is carried by cable in a number of markets.

Fox Sports Net South (FSNS), a regional sports network with a presence in numerous markets through cable and satellite outlets, will carry East Carolina's meeting with Atlantic Coast Conference power Wake Forest from Winston-Salem on Jan. 3. It will be the first basketball game between the schools in 20 years.

ECU, recently picked by the league's coaches to finish 10th in C-USA's new 12-team configuration, can increase its chances of having other games chosen for television by springing some early upsets in Ricky Stokes' inaugural season as head coach.

After the regular season, TV exposure opportunities start with the Conference USA Tournament in Memphis. CSTV will televise the quarterfinals on Mar. 9 and the semifinals on Mar. 10. CBS will air the championship game on Mar. 11.
