Kentucky Basketball broadcasts will now be available in Mandarin

Kentucky Basketball is going global. According to our friend John Huang, broadcasts of games will now be available in Mandarin through the JMI Sports Network, opening a new portal to the program’s Chinese fans.

UK grad student Austin Zhang will handle the primary broadcasting duties. You may remember him as the guy who asked John Calipari when he was going to add a Chinese player to the squad back in January:

Zhang was also a staple in the eRupption Zone during his time as an undergrad. I have no doubt his passion for Kentucky Basketball will lure in some new Chinese fans…and maybe even the next Yao Ming?

    Ha ha ha, When IU announced they were doing this, I laughed my a$$ off. IU had to scrap it though, because “we suck” doesn’t translate.
