Northern Kentucky University and Time Warner Cable have reached an agreement for select Norse men’s and women’s basketball games to be carried regionally on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel.
This marks the second year in a row NKU men’s basketball will be carried by TWC.
“I am pleased we can continue building a partnership with Time Warner that allows us to put our men’s and women’s basketball programs in the regional limelight,” said Ken Bothof, Director of Athletics. “We are very appreciative for having a partner of Time Warner’s caliber and for their recognition that both Norse men’s and women’s basketball is on the rise to great heights as Division I programs.”
Time Warner Cable SportsChannel will carry a total of six NKU basketball games this season, including five from BB&T Arena.
Men’s basketball home games will air against Oakland (Jan. 20), Detroit Mercy (Jan. 22) and Green Bay (Feb. 9). The regular-season concludes with a men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader on Feb. 26, with both games being broadcast on TWC SportsChannel.
The doubleheader features Valparaiso on the men’s side and Green Bay on the women’s. Both Valpo and GB were Horizon League regular-season champions last year.
The men’s contest at Cleveland State on Feb. 16 will also be carried by the network.
