FARMINGTON, Utah – The Big Sky Conference announced broadcast schedules for the upcoming basketball seasons, with the Griz and Lady Griz being selected for eight contests on SWX.

The list includes five men’s dates: Jan. 6 at Eastern Washington, Jan. 8 at Montana State, Jan. 13 vs. Southern Utah, Feb. 12 vs. Portland State and March 3 vs. Northern Colorado.

On the women’s side, the Lady Griz will have their non-conference game against Gonzaga broadcast on SWX on Nov. 14, before seeing the network pick up both games of the Brawl of the Wild series (Jan. 8 in Bozeman, Feb. 26 in Missoula).

In addition to SWX, all games will also be broadcast on ESPN+, part of the league’s broadcast rights deal that was agreed to this summer. All Griz and Lady Griz home games, and all home and road Big Sky Conference games, will be available with an ESPN+ subscription.

Other known broadcast dates for the men include Nov. 13 at Mississippi State on SEC+; Nov. 15 at North Dakota on Midco Sports; Nov. 29 at Oregon on the Pac-12 Networks; and Feb. 27 vs. Montana State on ESPNU.

The Griz will open their 2021-22 season on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. vs. Dickinson State, part of a double-header with the Lady Griz, who will face Northwest Nazarene at 5 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased for either contest online. Additionally, as part of the Can The Cats campaign, fans who donate five or more canned-food items can receive a free general-admission ticket. Those with tickets to Tuesday’s men’s game can come for the women’s contest, as well, while sitting in an open seat in the upper bowl, and vice versa.

Fans are asked to wear facemasks while inside Dahlberg Arena this season.
