CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charleston Southern will make two ESPN3 appearances in February as part of the Big South Conference's ESPN3 regular season basketball package, the league announced Monday. CSU's Feb. 16 home clash with defending Big South Tournament champion Radford, and a Feb. 23 road trip to Winthrop will be carried on the "Game of the Week" package.
The package begins in January and includes eight men's games and six women's matchups. ESPN3 will also broadcast the first round and quarterfinals of both the men's and women's championships in March.
CSU's meeting with Radford on Saturday, Feb. 16 figures to be a key late-season matchup. The Bucs were one of only two teams to beat the Highlanders on their home floor last year, prevailing in overtime behind 31 points from Christian Keeling. CSU also challenged Radford at home in a nip-and-tuck affair that the Highlanders won by three.
The following week, CSU will bid for its second consecutive win in Rock Hill. The Bucs ended the regular season in style at Winthrop a year ago, building a 20-point lead before holding on to knock off the Eagles on their Senior Day.
