Creighton University and Omaha CBS affiliate KMTV announced eight more television games for the local Bluejays fans to enjoy. Travis Justice and former Creighton guard Nick Bahe will broadcast some of the bigger games of the 2009-2010 CU hoops season, including:
- December 6 vs. Nebraska
- December 12 at George Mason (BracketBuster return game)
- December 29 vs. Northern Iowa (MVC opener)
- January 20 at Illinois State
- February 13 vs. Illinois State
- January 6 vs. Drake
- January 30 at Drake
- February 6 at Missouri State
Bahe has been busy the past two years going from Creighton player to graduate assistant to multitasking media personality. He garnered a job at NRG Media, home of 1620 AM The Zone, where he co-hosts The Schick and Nick Show on every day from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. He’ll flip the switch and work for Journal Broadcast Group during basketball season, joining T. Scott Marr on the radio broadcasts on Big Sports 590 and working with Justice on KMTV’s televised CU games.
Also tucked into the TV announcement was information that Creighton’s season-opener at Dayton will be televised … locally in Dayton on WHIO. It is still unknown whether their feed of this game will be available to residents of Omaha, but last season KMTV broadcasted the matchup at the Qwest Center and the feed was made available to the fans in Dayton. Will the same thing happen here? Regardless, in the past WHIO has streamed games online via its website, so that may be available as well.
These additions mean that as of right now, at least 19 regular season Creighton men’s basketball games will be on TV. This number could increase if Nebraska Educational Television (NET) picks up a broadcast or two and if the Jays’ BracketBuster night game in February gets the ESPN treatment. Last season, 23 of the regular season games were on TV.
