Oct. 31, 2013
DALLAS (SMU) - For the first time in program history, SMU women's basketball fans will have the opportunity to watch all 29 regular-season games live this season, with two games airing on national television. The Mustangs will have two games on ESPNU this season, stepping into the national spotlight at Louisville on Dec. 29, and again when SMU hosts the Cardinals on Jan. 19 in the newly-renovated Moody Coliseum.
ESPN will broadcast two games live on its digital channel, ESPN3, including the first game of the season in Moody Coliseum, a Jan. 4 matchup against USF. ESPN3 will also be in Memphis on Feb. 22 when the Mustangs take on the Tigers in the FedEx Forum. SportsNet New York will carry both games against Connecticut, which can be seen live at web.sny.tv/uconnhuskies by fans without SNY in their cable package.
In addition to the six games on ESPN networks and SNY, the American Digital Network, an internet broadcast run by the American Athletic Conference, will feature the Mustangs seven times. SMU will first be aired on the American Digital Network against Memphis at home on Jan. 7, starting a string of three straight broadcasts by the conference, including road contests at Rutgers on Jan. 11 and at Temple on Jan. 14. After the ESPNU broadcast on Jan. 19, the Mustangs return to the American Digital Network on Jan. 25 at Houston.
The American Digital Network will also carry SMU's game at UCF on Feb. 11, a home game against Houston on Feb. 15, and the final road game of the regular season on March 1 at USF. All of SMU's home non-conference games can be viewed on PonyUp TV at SMUMustangs.com/all-access, as well as the Jan. 28 game against Cincinnati, the Feb. 1 game against Temple, the Feb. 8 game versus Rutgers, and the last game of the regular season on March 3 against UCF.
The Junkanoo Jam tournament games in the Bahamas can be seen live at JunkanooJam.com. All other road games will air live on each individual school's website. For more information, visit SMUMustangs.com.
