El Segundo, CA (October 29, 2012) – Time Warner Cable SportsNet announced today that it has entered into a long-term agreement with the West Coast Conference (WCC) and will air a minimum of 15 live WCC men’s basketball games this season, as well as other sporting events throughout Southern California. The network’s WCC schedule will feature Southern California schools Loyola Marymount, Pepperdine and the University of San Diego, as well as BYU, Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s.

Nine of Time Warner Cable SportsNet’s WCC telecasts will air as “WCC Game of the Week” matchups on Saturdays this winter. Those games will be paired with a weekly half-hour program dedicated to WCC Athletics.

“West Coast Conference schools like Loyola Marymount, Pepperdine and the University of San Diego are an integral part of the Southern California sports landscape and we’re happy to give them a local TV home in Time Warner Cable SportsNet,” said Mark Shuken, Senior Vice President and General Manager, TWC Sports Regional Networks. “Our networks promise to give sports fans more access to their teams than they’ve had before, and our partnership with the WCC allows us to do that through more live games as well as more team programming.”

“We are proud to partner with Time Warner Cable Sports to showcase West Coast Conference basketball to our Southern California fans in an unprecedented capacity,” said WCC Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich.  “In addition, the WCC Game of the Week and pre-game show will help highlight our men’s basketball programs and further strengthen our position as one of the best basketball conferences in the nation.”

Time Warner Cable SportsNet also hosted the WCC’s tip-off event at its studios this morning.
