EDWARDSVILLE, ILL. - The SIUE Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and Charter Communications are proud to announce that nine Cougar basketball games will air on local television during the upcoming season. All nine games will air live on Charter's CCIN (Channel 3).
"We are proud to continue our relationship with Charter," SIUE Associate Athletic Director Todd Garzarelli said. "We had great response from our fans during our first year, and we are looking forward to our second season on CCIN."
The television schedule begins Friday when the men's basketball team opens the 2010-2011 season against Summit League opponent IPFW.
Five men's games and four women's games will air on CCIN, with eight of the games being produced locally by Charter Communications. The other game, the January 26 men's game versus Ohio Valley Conference foe Murray State, will be produced by Wazoo Sports as part of the OVC's package.
"We couldn't ask for a better partner than Charter as we continue to grow the media platform of SIUE Athletics," Garzarelli said.
Randy Karraker will return for his second season as the play-by-play voice, with SIUE Alum Mike Gibson returning as the color commentator.
