By The Staff

The Pegasus Sports Network has announced its internet coverage of the 2010-11 Anderson County Bearcats and Lady Bearcats. The network will provide live internet radio coverage of 15 Anderson County regular season games, plus the entire 30th District and Eighth Region tournaments. In addition, PSN will follow either or both teams if they advance to the Sweet 16.

Every broadcast will begin with a pre-game show beginning 30 minutes before the scheduled tip-off. Once again, one of the features of the pre-game show will include regular appearances by Anderson News sports editor John Herndon, who will provide his perspective on the game.

All broadcasts will be archived, and the archived broadcasts will be available for at least one year after the game.

The first game to air will be the Anderson County boys vs. Collins on Friday, Jan. 7. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m.

The initial Lady Bearcat broadcast of the season will feature Anderson against Mercer County on Tuesday, Jan. 11, also at 7:30 p.m. Broadcast schedules will be posted in the weekly editions of The Anderson News.

Pegasus will feature new Anderson announcers this year. Steve Swank, Director of the Phoenix Academy in Lawrenceburg, will take over as the new play-by-play voice of Anderson County basketball. Swank, the former Athletic Director at Henry County High School, was an assistant coach for Anderson boys’ coach Glen Drury last season and was a high school and college basketball coach in Florida for 15 years.

Swank will be joined by a rotating group of color commentators, including Anderson County athletic director Rick Sallee and last year’s Pegasus color commentators, Wayne King and Cory Quisenberry. In addition, Pegasus announcer Scott Jaggers, and chief announcer Mike Montgomery will also make appearances.

To listen to a broadcast, go to www.pegasussportsky.com, and click on one of the school logos at the top of the page. Then click on the game listing under either “Upcoming / Live Broadcasts” or “Archived Broadcasts”. The broadcast will start approximately 20-30 seconds after the ihigh.com video ad ends. The PSN broadcast is typically preceded by three or four minutes of instrumental music.
