ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Five Creighton basketball games, including three men's and two women's contests, are part of the league's 36-telecast, in-house television package on FOX Sports Midwest in 2012-13, Commissioner Doug Elgin announced today.
The Valley, with Niles Media Group of Kansas City serving as its production company, has worked in conjunction with FOX Sports Midwest -- along with its sister regional cable outlets FOX Sports Indiana and FOX Sports Kansas City -- and Comcast SportsNet Chicago to clear all basketball and Olympic sport telecasts.
FOX College Sports will also distribute all basketball and Olympic sport
championship telecasts on a national basis.
Creighton will have women's basketball games on Jan. 21 (at Missouri State) and Jan. 25 (home vs. UNI) air on the league's television package, in addition to men's basketball games on Jan. 2 (at Illinois State), Jan. 23 (at Drake) and Jan. 30 (home vs. Missouri State).
"It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since the league made the
decision to bring its television network in-house, but it was the right
move," said Elgin.
Creighton fans can expect additional men's basketball announcements in the coming days with broadcast schedules of some of the school's local television partners.
