GameDay For Hoops


Posted Aug 27, 2008


ESPN and the Big East conference have announced that ESPN College GameDay will broadcast live at the WVU Coliseum on Saturday, March 7, when the WVU men’s basketball team plays host to Louisville.

The popular college basketball television show will be making its first-ever appearance at the WVU Coliseum. The show is scheduled to broadcast live twice that day, both for one hour at 11 a.m. and at 8 p.m. West Virginia and Louisville will be televised by ESPN and tip at 9 p.m.

The WVU-Louisville game will be played on the final regular season weekend for college basketball in 2008-09. The Big East is the only conference that will have more than one league school host GameDay this season (Connecticut at Notre Dame on Jan. 24 is the other league contest).

“We are certainly excited about ESPN College GameDay coming to our campus,” says Head Coach Bob Huggins. “It will be a day that we will be able to showcase our great fans, our great University and the great state of West Virginia.”

The Big East will announce the rest of the conference schedule in early September.
