SAN BRUNO, Calif.  The West Coast Conference announced the comprehensive broadcast coverage of its 2017 basketball championships, set to take place March 2-7 at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.

Every game (excluding those on ESPN) involving the Gaels can be seen live online via SMCGaels.com. Fans can also listen to the live action with Alex Jensen on the call via the Saint Mary’s IMG Sports Network on TuneIn Radio.

Before the start of the 2016-17 season, it was announced that ESPN Networks will once again televise six games from this year's WCC Championships: two men's quarterfinals on ESPN2, one men's semifinal on ESPN and the other on ESPN2, the women's championship on ESPNU, and men's championship on ESPN. Each of these games can be seen on-line through ESPN's authenticated platform, Watch ESPN.

The WCC has teamed with BYU Broadcasting for coverage of the conference's premier event. BYUtv will broadcast the women's first round and quarterfinals on Thursday, March 2, a pair of women's quarterfinals and the men's first round games on Friday, March 3, two men's quarterfinals on Saturday, March 4, and the women's semifinals on Monday, March 6.

For the third straight season, a pair of men's quarterfinal games will be produced by Spectrum Cable Sports (formerly Time Warner Cable) and will air on its regional sports network, Spectrum SportsNet - the television home of the Los Angeles Lakers.

In addition, the Spectrum Cable Sports broadcasts can be seen in Northern California on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
