The North Dakota State University men's basketball team saw five more of its games in the upcoming 2014-15 season added to the television broadcast schedule on Tuesday, Oct. 14.
NDSU will have five Summit League contests carried on Midco Sports Network and ESPN3 through the league's television package, including the first four league games of the season. Home games against Oral Roberts (Jan. 2) and South Dakota State (Jan. 4), as well as road games at Omaha (Jan. 8), South Dakota (Jan. 14) and South Dakota State (Feb. 14) will be broadcast.
Add those games to KVLY's coverage of eight men's games and one women's game and Tuesday's announcement brings the total to a minimum of 19 televised men's games for the Bison and 3 televised women's games in 2014-15.
The Summit League announced a composite 2014-15 basketball television schedule that includes over 100 regional or national broadcasts. Included in that total are at least 70 games that will be available across the ESPN family of networks, with nearly all of those available across multiple platforms via WatchESPN.
Highlighting the schedule is a package of games on Midco Sports Network and ESPN3 that includes the first two rounds of The Summit League Basketball Championships and an additional 21 regular season men's and women's basketball broadcasts. All 14 Summit League Tournament games, including ESPNU's telecast of The Summit League Women's Basketball Championship game and ESPN/ESPN2's broadcast of the men's title game, will also be available on WatchESPN.
