HOUSTON - Two more University of Houston men's basketball road games will be televised, head coach Tom Penders announced Friday.
The Cougars' showdowns at Western Kentucky and the regular-season finale at Conference USA-rival Tulane will air live. That pushes the Cougars' season total to 14 televised games in 2009-10.
Tuesday's game from E.A. Diddle Arena in Bowling Green, Ky., will be shown live at 7 p.m., on Fox Sports Houston Plus (Comcast channel 76). The game against the Hilltoppers will re-air at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, and at noon, Feb. 11, on Fox Sports Houston.
In addition, fans also can watch Tuesday's game live on DirecTV channel 680 and Dish Network channel 475.
The regular-season finale at Tulane on March 6 will be shown live on CBS College Sports, the third time this season the Cougars have competed on that network.
Before facing Western Kentucky and Tulane, though, the Cougars return to action at 5 p.m., Saturday, when they meet C-USA rival Southern Miss at Hofheinz Pavilion. That game can be heard live on SportsTalk 790 AM or on the Internet at UHCougars.com with Tom Franklin calling the play-by-play action. The pregame show is slated to begin at 4:45 p.m.
