Media Menu: Creighton @ MVC Tournament
Thursday night begins the quest of ten teams to get a free ticket to the NCAA Tournament by winning the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. Each of the ten teams feel like they may have a chance to win the Conference Tournament just like they all felt like they could win the regular season championship. On Thursday, the teams that would have to win four straight games to get that ticket start their quest.
While Northern Iowa and Wichita State wait in anticipation who they will be playing on Friday, the Bluejays on the other hand know who their opponent is on Friday. Can the Bluejays get three wins in three days and get their seventh tournament title in twelve seasons? I guess that is what we all get to wait and see.
Many are flocking down to St. Louis to see the action of Arch Madness, but we know everyone cannot be there. At White & Blue Review, we want to make sure you are always aware of the different media at your disposal for keeping track of every Bluejays game, home and away. Here are the options that are available throughout the MVC Tournament.
There will be no TV for the play-in games on Thursday night. However, Friday and Saturday’s games will be televised on Fox Sports Net. Dan McLaughlin and Charlie Spoonhour will be on the call for this one, but I know that Mitch Holthus and Mac McCauslin will be a part of the broadcasts at some point. Here is how you can catch the game if you are in the Omaha metro:
- If you have Cox Communications, you can find the game on channel 47 or on the high definition channel 745 (the game is not in HD, though, so you will have sidebars on the screen).
- If you have satellite service you can see the game on Dish Network channel 418 and on DirecTV channel 671.
Sunday’s game will be televised nationally on CBS at 1PM.
