ESPN at Chico State

Sports network will broadcast Chico State basketball in February

Sports network ESPN will be on-hand to catch the action when Chico State's basketball teams tip off against Cal Poly Pomona early next year.

The cable-satellite station will broadcast the Feb. 19 men's and women's games against the Broncos on ESPN3 live as the network's Division 2 Game of the Week. ESPN broadcasts to more than 90 million households in the United States.

The men's teams from both schools are currently ranked in the top 25 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. The Chico State women's team has advanced to the NCAA championship tournament 10 times in the past 13 seasons.

This will be the network's first visit to Chico. The women's game starts at 5:30 p.m., and the men play at 7:30 p.m.
