ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- ESPN notified the Missouri Valley Conference of its
selection of the Wichita State at Creighton men’s basketball game for
air on ESPN or ESPN2 on Saturday, March 2, at 1 p.m. Central,
Commissioner Doug Elgin announced today.
The game will remain as a netflex option for either ESPN or ESPN2 to be determined and confirmed seven-ten days out.
On March 2, #13 Creighton -- 20-4 overall and 9-3 in league action --
plays host to #22 Wichita State -- 19-5 overall and 8-4 in league play
-- at CenturyLink Center Omaha in downtown Omaha, Nebraska.
The selection of this telecast for ESPN or ESPN2 marks the sixth time
that ESPN has used a “Wildcard” process to determine one of its MVC
men’s basketball telecasts. The ESPN or ESPN2 telecast will also be
simulcast on ESPN3 -- ESPN’s multi-screen sports network that gives fans
a 24/7 destination delivering thousands of live, global sports events
Using the Wildcard Weekend model, the league — through its television
partners ESPN, FOX Sports Midwest, FOX College Sports and Comcast
SportsNet Chicago — reserves clearance windows for March dates in the
fall of each academic year and waits until the midpoint of both the
men’s and women’s basketball seasons to determine its final
regular-season telecasts for both genders.
The week prior to the March 2 telecast, four Missouri Valley
Conference teams will participate in the 11th annual Ramada Worldwide
Indiana State will play host to Iona at 10 a.m. Central on ESPNU,
while Wichita State will entertain Detroit at 3 p.m. Central on either
ESPN or ESPN2. Creighton will play at Saint Mary’s at 5 p.m. Central on
either ESPN or ESPN2, while UNI will play host to Denver in a 7 p.m.
Central game on ESPN3.
