Monday’s Legends Game to be televised

prosgame

After much discussion over whether or not the upcoming Legends Games would be televised, it seems there has at least been a resolution for the Lexington version. From Larry Vaught:

While there’s been no official announcement – that should come tonight – the 7:30 p.m. exhibition game will be shown on WKYT in Lexington, WYMT in Hazard and WBKO in Bowling Green as part of a package produced by Gray Television. Other stations could also be added to the mix when the official word comes out tonight and certainly the game will be shown in the Dominican Republic with either the local feed interpreted in Spanish or possibly having a special crew calling the game in Spanish at Rupp Arena.

Dave Baker and Christi Thomas will provide the commentary for the broadcast, with Rob Bromley on hand to do some sideline reporting and, presumably, to go ‘Dentro del Corrillo.’ The game in Louisville will not be televised, partially because it has not been sold out. Still, this is good news for those people who don’t have tickets to the game in Lexington, as they’ll still get to see some of their favorite players grace the hallowed halls of Rupp Arena one more time.

    The DR team will go down—-big. But if it’s like most all star or exhibition games, they will call off the dogs if it gets too lopsided. Either way, should be fun to watch.

    Did the NCAA just change their mind again? I thought this was one of the original precipitating issues when the game was first planned.

    11, If I’m not mistaken, the issue was UK could not televise the event itself or reep any economic benefit from a teleivsed game. But any media outlet NOT affiliated with the university directly has the freedom to show whatever games they want.



  13. anyone else???

    As of now, the game will not be shown online. There will be a live blog, though.

    15 – If I’m not mistaken, he was invited but he and Chuck Hayes will be in China doing some business with their shoe company.

    Louisville has the largest fan base outside of Lexington and we can’t watch on tv? Redunkulous! A live blog, are you kidding? Who wants to watch a computer monitor as someone types “Block by Cousins”?
