Jan. 20, 2010
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The University of Memphis women's basketball team (10-7, 3-1 C-USA) trails just league leaders UAB (4-0) and East Carolina (4-1) in the league standings and is tied with SMU (13-4, 3- C-USA) and has won five of their last six games heading in to a Saturday contest against a Rice (8-9, 2-2 C-USA) squad that has won 8 of its last 11 games. The two squads will each bring a lot of momentum to the table for a Saturday morning game at FedExForum that will officially tip at 11:06 a.m. The game time was changed in order to accommodate a live television broadcast.
The game will air live on Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast (CSS) on Saturday, beginning at 11 a.m. and will air on a next day delay (Sunday) on CBS College Sports (CBS C) at 8:30 p.m. (CT).
Admission will be free for all fans for the game, and general admission seating throughout the lower bowl will be used (first come, first seated).
The game will be broadcast live with Greg Gaston on the play-by-play and Lin Dunn will serve as the color analyst for the Tigers' second consecutive televised game. Memphis won on the road in its first TV appearance, downing Southern Miss, 60-57, also on a game carried live by CSS.
