Boeheim's Army tips off in their first matchup in The Basketball Tournament this Saturday. If you can't make it to Philadelphia University for the 7:30 p.m. tip, you don't have to miss out on the fun.
TBT will be streaming the action live on Facebook. The service is free to use and will be produced by Whistle Sports. Coach Ryan Blackwell will be mic'ed up, as well as one player who has yet to be determined. Coverage includes play-by-play commentary but also in-the-action sound from inside the huddle and on the court. That kind of access will give fans an exciting and unique look to some of their favorite players on the hardwood.
BA is squaring up against Basketball City NYC Saturday night. If they win, they'll advance to a Sunday game. After that, the Sweet 16 and beyond are aired on ESPN's family of networks, with the semifinals and finals on the main channel.
For info on where to watch, go to TBT's website here and you'll be directed to the Whistle Sports Facebook page, which will host the stream.
Meanwhile, Boeheim's Army has started practicing and even went up against the current Syracuse Orange. Terrence Roberts has some thoughts.
