From the West Coast Chatter blog
As we ring in the New Year, the start of conference play in men's basketball generates excitement around the conference and throughout the region. This year, West Coast Conference basketball will be showcased with a WCC Game of the Week each Saturday afternoon. For the first time, WCC fans throughout our footprint (a fancy TV term essentially meaning those in the Pacific and Mountain Time Zones) can see the same game live on our regional sports network partners throughout the region.
Our new partner, Time Warner Cable SportsNet, will produce the telecast each Saturday. All nine teams will be featured on at least one WCC Game of the Week telecast in 2013. Legendary broadcaster Barry Tompkins will call the games, and will be joined most weeks by WCC broadcast veteran Dan Belluomini.
Each WCC Game of the Week broadcast will be preceded by WCC This Week - our new weekly half-hour look at West Coast Conference basketball. WCC This Week will feature coach and player interviews, features, highlights, and all the insight and analysis you need to get you ready for that Saturday's games.
The first WCC Game of the Week on Jan. 5 features Loyola Marymount at Saint Mary's (the Lions were the only team to win at Saint Mary's in 2012). LMU and the Gaels will tip-off at 1:30, following the first edition of WCC This Week at 1:00.
WCC This Week and the West Coast Conference Game of the Week can be seen live on Time Warner Cable SportsNet in Southern California, Comcast SportsNet California in the Bay Area, and ROOT Sports in the Northwest and Rocky Mountain regions. Please check local listings for the channel number in your area. Coming later this season, the show and Game of the Week will also be available on digital and mobile platforms.
