FCS, FSN Hoop It Up in Vegas7/14/2005 6:09 AM Eastern
Fox College Sports and FSN are headed to “Sin City” to hit the hardwood.
The two Fox Cable Networks Group-owned services are teaming up to cover two of prep basketball’s most prestigious summer-tournament championship games.
FCS will air the adidas Super 64 championship game at 10:30 a.m. (PST) July 26, from Las Vegas’ Cox Pavillion, followed by the Main Event championship at 12:30 p.m.
The winners of the two tournaments will then face each other in the inaugural Las Vegas Prep Basketball Showcase championship, which will air live on FSN’s Best Damn Sports Show Period at 5 p.m. that day.
“Many of the players competing in Las Vegas are the college stars of tomorrow, and having the championship game fall under the Best Damn Sports Show Period banner gives it a national primetime window,” FSN president Bob Thompson said in a prepared statement.
