Eight LSU Women’s Basketball games to be televised

From LSU Sports

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Eight LSU women's basketball games will be televised in 2013 as part of the Southeastern Conference's television package, the league office announced on Tuesday.

In addition, tip times have been set for the remainder of the Lady Tigers' schedule. The schedule for the Florida International Thanksgiving Classic will feature LSU taking on West Virginia at 7 p.m. CT on Friday, Nov. 23 in Miami, Fla. The Lady Tigers will take on the winner of Iowa-FIU on Sunday, Nov. 25.

LSU will make three appearances on Fox Sports Net South/Southwest, two appearances on the SEC Network and have marquee games on ESPN2 and ESPNU during the year.

Two contests will be televised in January as the Lady Tigers travel to Florida for a 1 p.m. CT start on Jan. 6 on the SEC Network. LSU's first FSN appearance will be at Kentucky at 2 p.m. CT on Jan. 27.

A big week of home games to open the month of February will all be televised. The Lady Tigers take on Texas A&M on ESPN2's "Big Monday" at 8 p.m. CT on Feb. 4 in the Maravich Center. Three days later, LSU hosts Tennessee at 8 p.m. CT on Feb. 7 on Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS). That Sunday, Feb. 10, Georgia visits the Maravich Center for a 12:30 p.m. CT on ESPNU.

Back-to-back road appearances on Fox Sports Net follow at Mississippi State on Feb. 17 (12:30 p.m. CT) and at Missouri on Feb. 21 (8 p.m. CT). LSU's final regular season television appearance is at Texas A&M on the SEC Network on Sunday, March 3 at 1 p.m.

The SEC Women's Basketball Tournament will undergo a format change for the upcoming 2012-13 season. The tournament, which had been a four-day event featuring 12 teams since 1992, will now expand to 14 teams, adding an extra day of competition.

Fox Sports Net continues its dedication to SEC events by adding the new Wednesday games, while continuing to televise the Thursday and Friday games. The semifinals will be aired on ESPNU for the fourth consecutive year, while the championship game will again be televised on ESPN2.
