Nov. 22, 2010

SAN BRUNO, CALIF. - The West Coast Conference has announced its television schedule for the 2011 West Coast Conference men's basketball season. In all, 44 of 56 regular season WCC games will be televised on a national, regional, or local level.

"We're thrilled to be able to showcase WCC basketball to such a large audience during the conference season," West Coast Conference Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich said. "This is an exciting time to be a part of the West Coast Conference. Not only are we coming off one of the best years in conference history, we once again have one of the top television agreements in the country thanks to our partnerships with Comcast, Cox, ESPN and Fox."

Once again, the West Coast Conference has worked with partners Comcast and Channel 4 San Diego to create a regional syndication package for a number of WCC games. Most games will be broadcast live in the markets of both participating teams, including five of the top 55 markets in the nation: the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle and San Diego. The Comcast games will air regionally on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, Comcast SportsNet California, and Comcast SportsNet Northwest.

In all, the combination of regional sports networks, KHQ-TV in Spokane, and Channel 4 San Diego will televise 31 West Coast Conference games in 2011. Additionally, the ESPN family of networks (ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU) will televise 13 West Coast Conference games to a national audience.

The regional telecasts kick off Saturday, January 8 when San Francisco visits Santa Clara in a game televised on CSN California. Also that night on television, Portland visits Gonzaga (FSN Northwest), and Saint Mary's travels to Pepperdine (Prime Ticket).

Last season, four West Coast Conference teams appeared in postseason play for just the second time in conference history. Saint Mary's advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 after winning the Zappos.com West Coast Conference Basketball Championship; Gonzaga won its tenth straight regular season West Coast Conference title; and both Portland and Loyola Marymount were invited to participate in the CollegeInsider.com tournament.

 

 

The 2011 West Coast Conference basketball season gets underway on Thursday, January 6 when Saint Mary's travels to Loyola Marymount (ESPNU). The season concludes with the Zappos.com West Coast Conference Basketball Championships starting Friday, March 4 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
