MPA Tourney Week Broadcast Deals Set
The Maine Principals' Association has signed agreements with MPBN and Northeast Sports Network to continue TV and webcasting coverage of high school basketball tournament games.
> MPA executive director Dick Durost says a new three year agreement with MPBN will keep state championship games on live television.
> A separate three year deal with NSN keeps semi-final and regional finals on video streaming.
> All quarterfinal round games are streamed by NFHSNetwork as part of an existing 10 year deal.
"These agreements solidify the MPA's desire to make all postseason basketball tournament games available to anyone, anywhere who cannot make it to one of the three tournament sites. Families and friend's of Maine's high school student athletes are the ultimate winners here."
NOTE: Sports Radio 92.9 The TIcket and 929theticket.com provide live coverage of over 50 tournaments games each year.
