SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – For the fifth consecutive season, all men's and women's games at The Summit League Basketball Championships can be seen on live television during the March 8-11 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 third-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 10 games total within the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds. The broadcast teams of Tom Nieman and Brad Newitt and Jay Elsen and Greg Stemen will provide the call while Steve Hallstrom will serve as sideline reporter. The Midco Sports Network telecasts will be shown throughout North Dakota, South Dakota and parts of rural Minnesota and Wisconsin. MidcoSN will provide live streaming of its coverage with packages available for individual games or all 10 men's and women's quarterfinal and semifinal contests (MidcoSN Watch Online).

Fox College Sports will air all 10 MidcoSN games nationally, eight live and two tape delayed, on its FCS Central and Pacific channels. 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). The March 8 men's quarterfinal game will air on the FCS Pacific channel while the March 8 women's quarterfinal and all March 9 quarterfinals and March 10 semifinal games will be shown on FCS Central.

Both of the league's title games will be nationally-televised. For the sixth consecutive year, ESPNU will air the women's championship game beginning at 1 p.m. (CT) on March 11 with Clay Matvick and Ros Gold-Onwude on the call. Later in the day, ESPN2 will show the men's championship game at 8 p.m. (CT) with Matvick and Darrin Horn calling the action. The men's broadcast marks the 20th consecutive season that The Summit League title will be decided on ESPN or ESPN2.
