Summit League Basketball Championships  |  @summithoops  |  @summitchamps

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – For the fourth consecutive season, all 14 men's and women's games at The Summit League Basketball Championships can be seen on live television during the March 9-12 event in Sioux Falls, S.D. The coverage by Midco Sports Net, Fox College Sports and the ESPN family of networks gives The Summit League a second-straight year with full national distribution for its marquee event.

Midco Sports Network, based in Sioux Falls, S.D., will air all men's and women's games during the first three days of the tournament, accounting for 12 games total within the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds. The first game of each day's men's and women's sessions will be called by Tom Nieman and Brad Newitt while Jay Elsen and Greg Stemen will provide the call for the second game of each session. Steve Hallstrom serves as sideline reporter for men's and women's coverage. The Midco Sports Net telecasts will be shown throughout North Dakota, South Dakota and parts of rural Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Fox College Sports holds exclusive national broadcast rights and will air the games on its FCS Atlantic channel, available via most major cable networks and on DirecTV. Subscribers who receive Fox College Sports get a set of three channels (Atlantic, Central and Pacific) regardless of geographical location (FCS Channel Finder). DirecTV subscribers can find all the men's and women's quarterfinal and semifinal games on channel 623.

Both of the league's title games will be nationally-televised. For the fifth consecutive year, ESPNU will air the women's championship game beginning at 2:30 p.m. (CT) on March 12 with Melissa Lee and Steffi Sorensen on the call. Later in the day, ESPN2 will show the men's championship game at 8 p.m. (CT) with Clay Matvick and Bob Valvano calling the action.
