GW Basketball Television Schedule Announced
Men's Basketball Slated for 12 Regular-Season TV Games; Women's Hoops to Host Two TV Broadcasts
Nov. 9, 2011
WASHINGTON - A dozen George Washington men's basketball regular-season games and a trio of GW women's basketball regular-season contests will be televised this season in national, regional and local markets. The 12 televised games are the most for the Colonials men's program in seven seasons.
All four rounds of the 2012 Atlantic 10 Men's Basketball Championship will be televised for a possibility of 16 televised GW men's basketball contests through the regular season and A-10 postseason play.
"Exposure on television - national, regional, and local - is integral to the growth and success of our men's and women's basketball programs and is a priority for our department," said GW Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero. "We have been and are continuing to work hard to develop a television package that highlights the best of what George Washington has to offer with our basketball teams, student-athletes, and as one of the nation's premier academic institutions."
The GW men's basketball team is set for three national broadcasts and, at most, nine regional broadcasts during the regular season. The Colonials will appear nationally on ESPNU in visits to California (Nov. 13) and Richmond (Feb. 11), and on CBS Sports Network in their regular-season finale at Dayton (March 3).
"We're very much looking forward to the opportunity to showcase our program on television this season," said first-year head men's basketball coach Mike Lonergan. "Not only is it great for our current players, fans and supporters, but the impact on recruiting is invaluable and this television package will go a long way in helping us build GW basketball."
The GW women's basketball team will host both national and regional broadcasts at Charles E. Smith Center in its contests against Old Dominion (Nov. 30) and Fordham (Jan. 7). The Colonials will face the Lady Monarchs on regional Comcast SportsNet, and welcome the Rams on the national CBS Sports Network. GW will also appear on local Verizon FiOS1 when it visits nationally ranked rival Georgetown on Dec. 11.
"It's very important for our program to have television coverage as we look to restore the proud tradition of GW women's basketball," said head coach Mike Bozeman. "We are excited for the chance to represent our storied program and outstanding university in two television games at Smith Center this season."
Comcast SportsNet reaches more than 4.7 cable and satellite homes throughout Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, as well as parts of West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
