USBC College Championships On CBS

CBS College Sports Network has announced plans to broadcast the tape-delayed finals of the 2009 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Intercollegiate Team Championships. The women’s final will air June 2 at 8 p.m. Eastern, and the men’s final will follow June 3, also at 8 p.m. Eastern.

The Team Championships will be contested April 15-18 at The Cherry Bowl in Rockford, Ill., featuring 16 men’s and 16 women’s teams from across the country. Those teams will have qualified by virtue of finishing in the top four at their assigned sectional competitions, which will be held in Allentown, Pa.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Fairview Heights, Ill.; and Las Vegas, Nev., this weekend.

This year’s broadcast will feature Mike Jakubowski (a.k.a. “Mike Laneside” on the PBA Tour) on play-by-play and “Bowlers Journal International” magazine Columnist and veteran Team USA member Diandra Asbaty on color. The CBS College Sport Network currently is seen in 26 million homes, according to the network.
