NORFOLK, Va. - The Old Dominion University basketball teams will be "prime-time" this winter with a record 16 games broadcast on national, regional and local television.

The Monarchs, pre-season ranked in the nation's Top 25 by several pre-season magazines, will be featured twice on ESPN, including a possible home "Bracket Buster" made-for-TV contest on Saturday, Feb. 18 and a road game at VCU on Feb. 11. In addition, 11 games will be carried and/or produced by Comcast.

"We are very excited about the exposure the athletic program and the University will receive this year through the broadcast of our basketball games," says athletic director Jim Jarrett. "The number of games being aired is a reflection on the respect our basketball programs receive nationally. We are pleased that our fans and alumni throughout the country will be able to have multiple opportunities to watch our teams in action."

In addition to the over-the-air broadcasts, ODU will also video-stream all regular season Monarch and Lady Monarch games from the Constant Center in conjunction with its website, www.odusports.com. To view the games, fans must purchase a monthly package that provides the audio and video broadcasts online. In addition, the monthly fee also provides access to over 150 other colleges and universities online broadcasts.
