SportSouth to Showcase Every ACC and SEC School in Series of 24 Men’s Basketball Preview Shows

Nov. 8, 2006

Beginning Monday, Nov. 6, SportSouth, the regional sports network that exclusively targets the interests of the southern sports fan, will premiere a month long series of 24 unique preview shows providing basketball fans with an in-depth look into the 2006-07 men’s basketball season for each Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and Southeastern Conference (SEC) school.

Each edition of COLLEGE HOOPS PREVIEW: 2006 will focus upon one ACC or SEC school providing viewers with a review of that school’s 2005-06 season. In addition, there will be insights, analysis and previews of the 2006-07 campaign. 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 throughout the season.

Heather Catlin hosts the ACC shows with commentary and insight from college basketball reporter, Mike Hogewood and analyst, Mike Gminski (ACC). Natalie Taylor hosts the SEC preview shows with reporter Dave Neal and analyst Barry Booker (SEC) offering their perspectives on each team. The preview shows also feature segments from ACC ALL ACCESS and SEC-TV reporter Jenn Hildreth.
