Oct. 21, 2014

IRVING, Texas - American Sports Network (ASN) announced today it will carry seven Louisiana Tech men's basketball games during the 2014-15 season.

The announcement means 15 of LA Tech's 31 games this season will be broadcast in some fashion with 14 on a cable TV network and the Nov. 17 game at Temple available on ESPN3.com.

Three of the first four home games, including the home opener against Morehead State on Nov. 21 in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic, will be available on television.

The tournament game against Presbyterian on Nov. 23 will also be carried as well as the following contest versus Samford on Nov. 28 inside the Thomas Assembly Center.

The remaining four televised games will be Conference USA matchups, two at home and two on the road.

Jan. 15 versus UAB and Jan. 31 against Marshall will be televised. The last two TV games will be at Middle Tennessee on Feb. 7 and at Old Dominion on Feb. 21.

ASN will also carry the first round and quarterfinals of the 2015 C-USA Men's Basketball Championship that begins on March 11 in Birmingham, Alabama.

The network is an initiative of the Sinclair Networks Group, LLC, which owns and operates programs and provides sales services to 164 television stations in 78 markets, reaching approximately 40 percent of U.S. television households. It includes FOX, ABC, CBS, MyTV, CW, NBC, Univision and Azteca affiliates.

This past summer, Conference USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky announced that the conference reached an agreement with Sinclair Broadcast Group, among the nation's largest television broadcasting companies, to produce and distribute 100 events each of the next two years.

Additional TV games remain a possibility and will be announced when finalized.
