Five W&M men’s basketball home games to air on Cox

The partnership between Cox Communications and the William & Mary Athletics Department continues over to the hardwood.

Tribe fans from around the state will be able to watch five selected W&M home men’s basketball games during the 2018-19 season on the Cox Channel line-up.

Beginning with the Tribe’s Dec. 1 game with former Colonial Athletic Association rival George Mason, Tribe fans can watch another season of W&M basketball on Cox.

The list of Cox-broadcast home contests includes four CAA games.

The Green and Gold’s league opener against James Madison on Dec. 28 will be available as well as the Jan. 12 meeting with preseason favorite Northeastern. W&M’s fifth annual Gold Rush Game on Feb. 2 against Delaware will air on Cox as well the home finale against UNCW on Feb. 23.

YurView will broadcast the five W&M home games in all Cox Virginia markets: Hampton Roads (channel 11), Fairfax (channel 74), Fredericksburg (channel 77) and Roanoke (channel 9).

The Tribe is the winningest program in the Colonial Athletic Association over the last six seasons with 98 victories and features one of the top offenses in the country.

W&M became the first team in NCAA history to shoot better than 80 percent from the free throw line (81.0), 50 percent from the field (51.1) and 40 percent from 3-point range (43.4) last season.

The Green and Gold is coming off a thrilling  87-85 comeback win over Atlantic 10 Conference foe Saint Joseph’s on Saturday.
