Pirate basketball gets national TV dates


More than 40 nationally-televised basketball games are scheduled to feature Conference USA men's teams during the 2006-07 season.

Non-conference games against teams from the Big East, Big 12, Pac-10, Southeastern and Mountain West conferences, along with conference duels featuring all 12 C-USA members, highlight the league's national TV lineup on CBS, CSTV, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and Fox Sports Net.

According to a C-USA announcement, ESPN and ESPN2 will combine to televise 14 games, beginning on Wednesday, Nov. 15, when Rice squares off with Gonzaga in the first round of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

CSTV will showcase 19 regular season games and will also carry early rounds of the 2007 C-USA basketball championship tournament from Memphis, TN, showing all four quarterfinal games on Thursday, Mar. 8, and the semifinals on Mar. 9.

CBS will once again air the championship game on Saturday, Mar. 10, at 11:35 a.m., and will broadcast the Houston at Memphis regular season game on Feb. 25.

East Carolina's game at Tulsa on Jan. 10 and the Pirates' home game with Memphis on Jan. 20 will be shown on CSTV, and the Pirates will appear on the ESPNU network when they play at N.C. State on Dec. 28.

The conference says it is also securing a number of games for regional and local packages.

ECU women's hoops getting tube time, too

Conference USA has announced that a total of 10 women's basketball games will be televised nationally or regionally during the 2006-07 season as part of the league's television package with ESPN and CSTV. Included will be four contests on ESPN2 and a six-game package on CSTV.

Tulsa, Rice, SMU, Tulane and East Carolina will each have at least two games televised, while UAB, Marshall, Houston and Southern Miss will each have one game televised.

After CSTV kicks off its national coverage with Tulane hosting Rice on Sunday, Jan. 7, Conference USA doubles up on Jan. 14 and Jan. 21 with games on both CSTV and ESPN2. The Jan. 14 matchups will be UAB at Southern Miss for a 2 p.m. tip on CSTV, followed by a 4 p.m. game between Tulane and SMU on ESPN2.

Sunday, Jan. 21, features another doubleheader involving the two networks as SMU travels to Tulsa for a 1 p.m. game on CSTV and Houston drives across town to meet Rice for a 3 p.m. tip on ESPN2.

East Carolina makes its first of two television appearance on Jan. 28 on CSTV, when the Pirates travel to Marshall for a 3 p.m. start time. ECU then travels to Tulsa for an ESPN2 game on Feb. 11.

CSTV will carry the two semifinal games of the 2007 C-USA women's basketball tournament, while ESPN2 will carry the championship game on March 4.

C-USA is entering its second season of a six-year deal with CSTV. CSTV, which has agreements with distributors that serve more than 65 million households nationwide, says it expects its programming to soon be available on cable in all Conference USA markets.
