NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana announced Monday that Panhandle Sports Broadcasting of Pensacola, Fla., will provide live internet broadcasts of 12 XU men's basketball games and 12 XU women's basketball games during the 2011-12 regular season.

All broadcasts will be XU home games at The Barn, beginning with the Gold Rush opener Nov. 2 against Carver and the Gold Nuggets' opener Nov. 4 against Florida Memorial.

PSB will broadcast 10 XU doubleheaders, including seven Gulf Coast Athletic Conference matchups. Fans can access the live broadcasts at www.psblive.com or www.xula.edu/athletics/stream.

 

There will be no charge to watch the games live. PSB will archive XU broadcasts at its website, www.psblive.com, and sell DVDs of broadcasts for $20 per game.

"This is another upgrade for our program," said Dennis Cousin, Xavier's director of athletics. "These live broadcasts will strengthen our brand and provide us increased visibility."

Panhandle Sports Broadcasting is a regional company which covers college, high school and youth sports through internet streaming in audio and video media. Its first broadcast was in 2007. Co-owners are Bill Brownell and Joe Paschal.

"PSBLIVE is very excited about this opportunity," Brownell said, "and looks forward to broadcasting Xavier basketball to its many loyal fans both nationally and internationally."

Businesses and individuals interested in advertising on the broadcasts should contact Cousin at (504) 520-7330.

Both Xavier teams won 27 games this past season and qualified for the NAIA Division I National Championships.
