Ticket TV Is Your Ticket To High School Basketball This Winter
Snow flurries are in the air and the sky gets pitch black by 4 p.m. That can only mean one thing...it's high school basketball season in Maine!
Boys and girls basketball tips off across the state Friday night (Dec. 10) and Ticket T.V. at 929TheTicket.com is ready to bring you the best coverage of all the action from around eastern, central and northern Maine.
The Ticket's coverage of the 2021-22 season begins Friday night in Brewer as the Witches host the Skowhegan River Hawks for a boys matchup at 6 p.m.
The Ticket is continuing its partnership with Brewer High School and will feature five of the Witches' games vs. opponents outside the greater Bangor area in the month of December.
92.9TheTicket.com and Ticket T.V. is also pleased to announce a new partnership with the Big East Conference to create the 'Big East Network,' (BEN). The new agreement commences this Saturday (Dec. 11) with a doubleheader featuring the MDI Trojans at John Bapst. The twin bill, which will be played at Hermon High School, will tip off with the girls game at 1 p.m., followed by the boys contest at 4 p.m.
A total of 10 Big East games will be featured on Ticket T.V./BEN in the month of December.

On Tuesday, Dec. 21, Ticket T.V. will feature a pair of games (6:30pm, Edward Little @ Bangor, girls) and (6:30pm, Hampden @ Bangor, boys).
