MACON, Ga. – The Atlantic Sun Conference and CollegeInsider.com are partnering for a second year to present the #ASunMBB CollegeInsider Showcase, an eight-week, live Thursday night game featured on WatchCollegeInsider.com.
The slate will begin on January 9 and run through February 27. The games will stream live on the site via the ASun.TV feed hosted by NeuLion.
“Joe Dwyer and Angela Lento have built CollegeInsider.com into an influential voice, particularly for mid-major basketball. We are excited to continue our partnership with them,” said A-Sun Commissioner Ted Gumbart. “The Thursday Night Showcase expands the coverage and overall distribution of A-Sun basketball and provides a wonderful opportunity to feature our institutions, student-athletes and coaches on a well-respected college basketball platform.”
“We are thrilled to be working with the Atlantic Sun Conference again this season,” said Angela Lento, Vice-President of College Insider, Inc. “We have had a excellent working relationship with Ted Gumbart and his entire staff so it is great to once again be able to showcase Atlantic Sun games during the season.”
Fans will be able to see every A-Sun men's basketball home game this year as the conference has secured distribution for at least 46 games on the ESPN family of networks, nine with regional sports network CSS and the remainder on ASun.TV.
Since 1996, CollegeInsider.com has championed the outstanding student-athletes, coaches and institutions associated with mid-major college basketball. In 2013, CI garnered a New York Emmy Award in Sports Coverage. The site’s creative content includes regular features such as the “coach column,” unique offerings like All-Access Video and original and fan-friendly offerings such as the Mid-Major Top 25, the Runway to the Fashionable and the season-long Shots from the Heart free throw shooting contest. The site also bestows 15 national awards, which pay homage to some of the greats of the game as well as runs the postseason CIT event.
