Men's Basketball TV Schedule Announced
Nov. 8, 2005
BERKELEY - With scheduled appearances on Comcast SportsNet, ABC, ESPN, Fox Sports Net and CSTV, at least 21 California men's basketball games - including every road game - will be televised live during the 2005-06 season.
The Bears can be seen on Comcast SportsNet - Cal's local TV partner - six times this year, with four of the broadcasts originating outside of Haas Pavilion. CSN will air the Bears' opener at Eastern Michigan Nov. 18 and showcase Cal's home contests vs. San Jose State Nov. 30 and vs. Akron Dec. 3. The San Jose State game will be seen live in the Bay Area and on a delay basis throughout the rest of Northern California.
Other CSN games on the schedule are at USC Dec. 29, at Arizona State Jan. 19 and at Oregon Feb. 4.
Cal's Dec. 10 match-up with Kansas at Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo., will be shown on ESPN beginning at 9 a.m. Pacific Time, while the Bears' contest against DePaul in the Pete Newell Challenge will air on CSTV at 9 p.m.
Fox Sports Net will broadcast nine of Cal's Pac-10 games, including six consecutive contests from Feb. 9 through March 2. In addition, the Dec. 31 game at UCLA will be on FSN West 2, the Jan. 13 game at Stanford will appear on FSN Bay Area, and the Jan. 17 game at Arizona will be on ABC.
The regular-season finale vs. USC has been designated an FSN Wildcard, meaning the game could still be picked up for television. Finally, the first three days of the Pac-10 Tournament will air on FSN, with the championship game slated for CBS.
Comcast SportsNet can be seen in the San Francisco Bay Area on Channel 400 for digital subscribers, on DirecTV Channel 656 and on Channel 409 on the Dish Network. For a complete list of Comcast SportsNet channels, visit www.comcastsportsnet.com.
