Cullowhee, N.C. - Due to unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances on Monday evening, coverage of the O'Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic Sub-Regional round from the Ramsey Center was interrupted and altered both in providing live GameTracker and radio coverage. Western Carolina Athletics apologizes for any inconvenience the issues may have caused.
Game day staff experienced technical difficulties with the GameTracker software and Internet connection issues that prohibited the game stats to be delivered to CBS Sports, the official web site provider of Catamount Athletics.
Also, while commentating the opening game of the CBE Classic, the Catamount Sports Network experienced issues with its Tie-Line broadcast unit which affected the way the connection was made to the three radio stations - WWCU-FM, Power 90dot5 in Cullowhee, 680 AM WRGC in Sylva and 920 AM WPTL in Canton, as well as through Stretch Internet at CatamountSports.com.
CSN resorted to its old, back-up Zercom broadcast unit to provide radio coverage, although not at the same audio quality as Catamount fans have become accustomed.
Western Carolina media relations personnel, as well as technical support professionals from a variety of sources, are working to remedy the issues to help provide coverage of the remainder of the tournament.
Fans are encouraged to double-check CatamountSports.com for both GameTracker links and for game audio of every game of the O'Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic beginning with Tuesday's first game at 5:00 pm. If the problem can not be fixed, Catamount fans can follow all of the action online at WWCUFM.com, the online home of Power 90dot5.
Again, Western Carolina Athletics apologizes for any inconvenience.
