ESPN Selects Cal Women’s Basketball For Two Games
BERKELEY – The Pac-12 announced Thursday that two California women’s basketball games have been selected to air on the ESPN Family of Networks. The full Pac-12 television schedule will be released at a later date.
Cal’s games Arizona State and at Stanford will be broadcast nationally, marking the fourth consecutive season that the network has chosen to select the Golden Bears. In Lindsay Gottlieb’s first three seasons in Berkeley, the Bears have made 13 appearances on the ESPN networks, including five last season.
ESPNU will televise California’s game at Arizona State in Tempe on Friday, Feb. 8 at 1 pm (PT). The Golden Bears and Sun Devils split the series last year with both teams claiming 11-point wins on their home courts.
ESPN2 will televise California’s game at Stanford on Sunday, Feb. 22 at 1 pm (PT). That game will be a part of the network’s Play 4Kay programming. This year marks the third consecutive season that a Battle of the Bay matchup will be nationally-televised by ESPN.
California opens the fourth year of Gottlieb’s tenure at Pacific on Sunday, November 16 in Stockton, Calif.
