TULSA, Okla.-ORU fans around the world will have multiple opportunities to watch the Golden Eagles on the hardwood this year, it was announced by the ORU Athletics Department today with the release of the 2012-13 TV schedule. Between Golden Eagle Broadcasting, the Southland Digital Network and ESPN, every home game will be broadcast to a national and global audience.
All men's basketball home games, with two exceptions, will be aired locally in Tulsa on KGEB (53) and nationally for DirecTV subscribers on GEB (363). Additionally, each of those games can also be seen on Fox College Sports and will be broadcast on the internet through ELIve at www.ORUGoldenEagles.com.
The exceptions to the Golden Eagle Broadcasting schedule are the November 28 contest against Oklahoma, and the January 24 double header against Lamar. Those games can be seen globally on ESPN3 as part of the Southland Digital Network's package, announced earlier this week, giving the ORU women's basketball team the opportunity to be seen on ESPN3 as well.

The Golden Eagles can be seen on the CBS Sports Network as they take part in the Great Alaska Shootout. The partnership between the network and the tournament was released earlier in the year.
It has also already been announced that Coach Scott Sutton's team will be seen on the Pac 12 Network as they travel to Arizona on December 18 and on CSS as they face Memphis on December 28. It is expected that other road games will be picked up for TV as well.
All of the women's basketball home games will be broadcast through ELIve (www.ORUGoldenEagles.com) and first-year head coach Misti Cussen is hoping that some road games, including their contest on December against the defending NCAA National Champions from Baylor, will be broadcast as well.
Additional TV appearances will be listed at www.ORUGoldenEagles.com as they are announced.
