DENVER-Boise State men's basketball will appear on the WAC Sports Network (WSN) four times this season. The Broncos will host two games on the television network, and play a pair of televised road games. This is the debut season for WSN in men's basketball.
Boise State's first appearance on WSN will come Saturday, Jan. 15, at home against Nevada. The following weekend the Broncos' game at Idaho will be seen on WSN. The Broncos will again be featured, Thursday, Feb. 10, against Fresno State at Taco Bell Arena. The team's final appearance on the conference network will be Saturday, Feb. 26, when it visits Nevada.
The WSN slate features 12 conference games, hosted by seven different WAC members.
"We received such positive feedback from our member schools and their communities with our football rollout, that we're definitely pleased to now introduce WSN for basketball," said Western Athletic Conference Commissioner Karl Benson.
The five-member broadcast team appointed for the 2011 schedule comprises Rich Cellini, Guy Haberman and Dave Harbison as play-by-play announcers, with Dave Bollwinkel and Bob Donewald serving as color commentators. Haberman and Harbison were members of WSN's football broadcasting team, as well.
