Oregon Announces Men's Basketball Television Schedule
Nov. 14, 2000
EUGENE -- Seventeen of Oregon' 28 men's basketball games will be televised live either on a national or regional basis, Oregon associate athletic director Dave Heeke announced Tuesday.
The first broadcast of the season will be the Dec. 2 Massachusetts game at Portland's Rose Garden, which will be shown on the Oregon Sports Network, in conjunction with ESPN Regional. OSN will also carry the Dec. 30 game with Louisville from storied Freedom Hall. The 17-game slate also includes 14 Pac-10 games.
'Working with the Pac-10 package, OSN and ESPN Regional, we have been able to put together a television schedule that guarantees Oregon will again receive maximum television exposure on a national and regional basis,' Heeke said. 'It also allows our fans around the country to follow the team in some great non-conference games and throughout the Pac-10 schedule.'
Oregon will appear on ABC and ESPN2 once, Fox Sports Net six times and eight times on OSN. Fox Sports Net will also appear carry the Jan. 20 Washington State game live to the Pacific Northwest only.
The Ducks make their lone ESPN2 appearance of the season Dec. 16 versus Auburn at the Las Vegas Showdown. The ABC appearance comes Jan. 13 at Stanford.
Beginning with the Jan. 27 game at UCLA, Oregon will have five consecutive games shown on Fox Sports Net, including all four games of its longest homestand of the season, Feb. 1-10. Those appearances include games against Arizona, Arizona State, Stanford and California.
Two game times were moved to accommodate television: the Dec. 30 game at Louisville was moved from 11:00 a.m. Pacific time to 4:00 p.m., while the Jan. 20 Washington State game was moved from 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
