ST. LOUIS – Saint Louis University Director of Athletics Chris May today announced the complete television package for Billiken men’s basketball. At least 27 games will appear on television – 16 telecasts on national networks and 11 regional telecasts on FOX Sports Midwest.
“We are thrilled to offer a record number of SLU broadcasts to the loyal Billiken basketball and St. Louis sports fans,” May said. “FOX Sports Midwest is a leader in sports coverage in the St. Louis and Midwest regions, so we are proud to once again partner with them to offer a very robust regional package. Clearly, the added number of national telecasts speaks volumes to what our program has accomplished and where it is headed.”
“The added exposure is great for our program,” Billiken head coach Jim Crews said. “We have been very well received during recruiting, and part of that is directly due to our games being seen by more and more people on the national and local levels.”
“We’re excited to televise our biggest Billikens’ TV schedule in more than a decade,” FOX Sports Midwest General Manager and Senior Vice President Jack Donovan said. “The Saint Louis University program is on the rise, poised for another big season after last year’s A-10 championship run.”
The complete schedule, with TV notations and tip times, is attached.
