Two Northwest rivals. One regional television broadcast. A potential 1,000th win for the Seattle Pacific men’s basketball program.
The numbers say it all about the Wednesday, Jan. 26 clash between Seattle Pacific (11-5, 5-3 GNAC) and Western Washington (10-6, 5-3). Tip-off is 7 p.m. at Brougham Pavilion on the SPU campus for the game that will be televised live on FSN Northwest.
The Falcons have a 999-674 all-time record since the program was founded in 1943-44. SPU won 10 of the last 11 meetings with the Vikings, including a sweep of last year’s season series. Wednesday marks the midway point of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference schedule for the Falcons and ends their five-game homestand.
SPU plays seven of its final nine regular season games on the road, starting Saturday, Jan. 29 at Western Oregon with a 7:30 p.m. game in Monmouth, Ore.
FSN Northwest will televise Wednesday’s game live throughout the region at 7 p.m.
The SPU men will appear on live television at least twice this season on FSN Northwest. In addition to Wednesday’s home game, the Falcons’ Feb. 9 contest at Central Washington will be broadcast at 7 p.m. SPU hopes for a third TV game as FSN will air the March 4 GNAC Tournament championship game at 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
SPU basketball tickets can be purchased at Brougham Pavilion on game day.
