Hilltopper Basketball Goes Broadband NCAA to Broadcast Saturday's Games
Show your support for the men's and women's basketball teams — co-champions in last season's Heartland Conference — as they host St. Mary's on Saturday, Jan. 20, at the Recreation and Convocation Center. The women will play at 6 p.m. and the men will play at 8 p.m.
Remember to wear blue and gold while you cheer on the Hilltoppers as the NCAA covers both games for a video web cast on College Sports Television (CSTV). This is the first time the NCAA will send a crew to film Division II games for a video web cast. The NCAA is broadcasting only two games in the Heartland Conference and St. Edward's University will be featured in both broadcasts on Jan. 20 and Feb. 17.
In a pre-season poll, the men's squad was chosen as pre-season favorite to win the Heartland Conference, and the women were picked to compete for the title as well.
