SEATTLE - Thanks to the efforts of FSN Northwest, University of Washington women's basketball fans will have the opportunity to watch at least six Husky games on its network this season.
FSN Northwest announced today it has added the Jan. 29 UW at Washington State contest and the Feb. 4 UW at Arizona State game to its schedule of live women's basketball telecasts. This brings to total number of Washington games televised by FSN Northwest to six, with additional appearances possible depending on the team's performance in the Pac-10 Tournament in March.
The Huskies' annual rivalry contest at Washington State will tipoff at 5 p.m., one hour earlier than the original start time, at Friel Court in Pullman, Wash. FSN Northwest will televise a 30-minute College Hoops Northwest pregame show beginning at 4:30 p.m.
