FSN South to Showcase Clemson with Men’s Basketball Preview Shows

Oct. 27, 2005

Beginning Friday, Nov. 4, FSN South will premiere a series of 30-minute special programs that provides an in-depth look into the 2005-06 men’s basketball season for each Atlantic Coast Conference and Southeastern Conference school. The COLLEGE HOOPS PREVIEW: 2005 series will air in prime time across FSN South’s seven-state territory, reaching more than 11 million homes in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. The show will feature Clemson on Monday, Nov. 7, at 8:30 PM.

Each edition of COLLEGE HOOPS PREVIEW: 2005 will focus upon one ACC or SEC school and will provide viewers with a review of that school’s ’04-05 season as well as offer insights, analysis and projections for the ’05-06 season. Shot largely on-location at the campus of each ACC and SEC school, the shows will also include profiles and interviews with the head coach and key players; a segment featuring several prominent former college basketball coaches and current telecast analysts; and key team story lines that may unfold during the season.

The COLLEGE HOOPS PREVIEW: 2005 series will be hosted by Sage Steele and Julie Donaldson and will feature reports from FSN South’s ACC ALL ACCESS and SEC-TV reporter Jenn Hildreth. FSN South college basketball analysts Mike Gminski (ACC) and Barry Booker (SEC) will interview coaches and players from each school, and FSN South college basketball analysts and former head coaches Bobby Cremins, Perry Clark and Eddie Fogler will offer their perspective on each team.

“The college basketball season is more than just a sport for millions of passionate fans across the South. It’s a seasonal preoccupation that consumes and dictates their livelihood for five months out of the year,” said Jeff Genthner, FSN South’s vice president and general manager. “This preview series represents FSN South’s commitment to providing the ACC and SEC and their millions of passionate fans with the most comprehensive television coverage available. We’re very excited to preview the coming season with these entertaining and insightful preview shows, and we look forward to the excitement and drama of the 2005-06 basketball season for these two great conferences.”

This season, FSN South will telecast 46 ACC and 54 SEC (including eight games from the SEC Tournament) men’s basketball games. The network also will air 28 regular season ACC women’s games, plus selected games from the postseason tournament, including the championship. FSN South will telecast 26 regular season SEC women’s games, plus 10 matchups from the postseason tournament.

The COLLEGE HOOPS PREVIEW: 2005 series premieres on Friday, Nov. 4, with a prime time block of shows, and the first preview spotlights defending NCAA champion North Carolina (7:30 p.m.), followed by Duke (8 p.m.); Maryland (8:30 p.m.); NC State (9 p.m.); and Wake Forest (9:30 p.m.). SEC previews begin on Monday, Nov. 7.

Additionally, each of the SEC COLLEGE HOOPS PREVIEW: 2005 shows will air nationally on Fox College Sports (FCS) – three regionally-aligned channels (FCS Atlantic, FCS Central, FCS Pacific) programmed from the 20 FSN and FSN-affiliated regional sports networks. FCS is available to 40 million digital homes nationwide and is seen by viewers in the nation’s 25 largest cities.
