FSN NW Announces Television Schedule
Oct. 6, 2004
Corvallis, Ore. - Fox Sports Net Northwest has announced it will televise five Oregon State University men's basketball games live this winter.
The regional cable network will open its broadcast of Beaver basketball Sat., Dec. 11 at 9:30 a.m. PST when Oregon State travels to Atlanta to play the Georgia Bulldogs in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Classic for Kids. The game will be played at the Philips Arena, the home of the National Basketball Association's Atlanta Hawks.
The remaining four games are Pac-10 Conference encounters, starting Jan. 15 at Washington (7 p.m.). OSU will also appear Jan. 20 vs. Arizona State (5:30 p.m.), Feb. 5 vs. Oregon (4 p.m.) and Feb. 10 vs. Washington State (5:30 p.m.).
The contests vs. Arizona State and Washington State feature a special tip-off time for the Thursday games.
'The ability to work with Fox to find games that will showcase our program is something we feel is important for Oregon State basketball,' Director of Athletics Bob De Carolis said. 'We understand the early start times for two of our weekday games may create some issues for our fans, but we hope we have the understanding of Beaver Nation that exposure is important for this emerging program. This is an experiment this season and does not necessarily indicate a trend for future years.'
FSN Northwest's parent, Fox Sports Net, will televise the following games to a national audience; Dec. 4 vs. Colorado (1:30 p.m.), Jan. 13 at Washington State (7:30 p.m.), Jan. 22 vs. Arizona (5 p.m.), Feb. 13 vs. Washington (1 p.m.) and Feb. 20 at Arizona (1:30 p.m.). The network may also add games at a later date.
The in-state Beaver Sports Television Network is expected to announce coverage of additional games in the near future.
