DENVER, Colo. -
The WAC Sports Network (WSN) today announced its first-ever broadcast schedule and talent line up for men's basketball, marking its debut for the sport since launching two months ago.
The WSN - a product of the Western Athletic Conference and its multimedia rights partner, Learfield Sports - will broadcast 12 evening basketball games from January 3 through March 5, 2011.
Additionally, 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.
"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 WAC Commissioner Karl Benson.
The WSN will allow for WAC basketball games to be produced and distributed to media outlets in the respective school markets. Learfield Sports' locally based WAC Sports Properties team has oversight of WSN through Learfield Sports' extensive conference partnership. The company represents the WAC, as well as seven member schools: Boise State, Fresno State, Idaho, Louisiana Tech, Nevada, San Jose State and Utah State.
