LIBERTY, Missouri - The William Jewell Sports Network and TEAM Sports of Kansas City are pleased to announce that the February 14th basketball doubleheader between Central Methodist University and the Cardinals will be available via a live video webstream at no cost to viewers.
The video presentation is the first for the William Jewell College Sports Network.
The webstream will be available for both the women’s game that starts at 2:00, and for the men’s game that starts around 4:30. Rick Cole will again have the play by play call, with wife (and co-owner of TEAM Sports) Carla Cole doing color commentary. The pregame for the women’s game will begin at 1:45.
“The video is something we’ve wanted to try with Jewell for a while now,” said Rick Cole. “We will present it largely like we have the audio presentations, with an eye toward adding some other production aspects down the road. First, we want to see how the thing looks, and we want to see how Cardinal fans like it.”
WJCSN fans will simply click on the “Listen Live” link on the website as always; a video box will appear automatically, which can then be zoomed to the monitor’s full size if desired.
“It will be fun,” said Carla Cole. “TEAM Sports has done live video for a few events like the Missouri State High School wrestling finals, and had a great response. And there should be a tremendous matchup in both the women’s and the men’s games.”
The William Jewell Cardinal Sports Network has been the voice of the Cardinals for the past three years. Audio presentations of the entire Jewell football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball schedules, along with selected volleyball, soccer, softball and baseball events, are available through the Jewell athletic webpage, both live and archived for on-demand listening.
