Hillcat Basketball Returns to RSU Radio
CLAREMORE, Okla. – As the sixth season of Rogers State basketball gears up, the athletics department announced Friday Hillcat hoops will return to the airwaves of RSU Radio 91.3FM this season.
“We’re excited to renew our partnership with RSU Radio for the 2012-13 basketball season,” RSU Director of Athletics Ryan Bradley said. “There’s a lot of anticipation about this year’s teams and these broadcasts will ensure our fans don’t miss any of the action.”
In addition to games on RSU Radio, Hillcat Athletics will provide live streaming on the Hillcat Network for the second straight season at www.rsuhillcats.com/live. Games will be simulcast on the Hillcat Network with live HD video streaming at all home contests along with audio streaming provided for all road contests.
“As the transition to full NCAA membership begins, it is a perfect time to be teamed up with Athletics again” says Cathy Coomer, General Manager of KRSC 91.3 FM and assistant professor in Communications.
