LONG BEACH, Calif. - Long Beach State basketball will appear on ESPN3 up to eight times during the 2014 Big West season, the conference announced on Tuesday. The men’s basketball team is slated to appear up to six times on ESPN3 with the women’s basketball team possibly appearing twice in the regular season.
The Big West recently unveiled a new mobile production facility in partnership with ESPN3 and successfully began broadcasting Big West contests, beginning with the women’s soccer tournament semifinals in Fullerton, Calif. Big West basketball will be broadcast on ESPN3 24 times this season.
“The Big West’s basketball presence on ESPN3 expands upon what is already offered through ESPN2 and ESPNU, giving fans opportunities all season long to watch their favorite team in action,” said Big West Commissioner Dennis Farrell. “We anticipate our institutions will be able to use this endeavor as an additional avenue to promote and publicize their programs.”
Long Beach State’s men’s basketball team will make four guaranteed appearances on ESPN3 this season. Two 49ers games are also among the options for “Wild Card” games at the beginning of March. The 49ers will first appear on Feb. 6 at UC Irvine and will appear again on Feb. 8 at UC Riverside. The next week the 49ers will host UC Santa Barbara on Feb. 13 on ESPN3. Their final appearance will come on ESPN3 will come on Mar. 8 when the Beach hosts UC Riverside in Walter Pyramid.
On Mar. 1, the 49ers will play at Cal State Fullerton on one of the ESPN channels. If the game is not picked up by ESPN2 or ESPNU, it will be broadcast on ESPN3. The 49ers game at Cal State Northridge on Mar. 6 is among three options for games to be broadcast on ESPNU and ESPN3. Long Beach State is a wild card choice on ESPNU for its game with Cal State Fullerton on Feb. 1 as well. If it is not picked up by ESPNU, the game will appear on ESPN3.
The women’s basketball squad is guaranteed at least one regular season appearance on ESPN3 when UC Davis visits Walter Pyramid on Feb. 20. If the Cal State Fullerton at UC Irvine men’s game is picked up by ESPNU on Jan. 16, the 49ers women’s game against UC Santa Barbara will also be broadcast on ESPN3.
Long Beach State will also serve as the host of the Big West Women’s Basketball Tournament for the first round and quarterfinals. All four of those games will appear on ESPN3 with the semifinals at the Honda Center also slated for ESPN3 broadcasts.
