Penn Announces 2008-09 Men's Basketball Radio Schedule

PHILADELPHIA - Penn Athletics and the Penn Sports Network will once again partner with 950 ESPN Radio and WXPN (88.5 FM)to broadcast its men's basketball games over the radio.

The season begins on WXPN, with the Quakers traveling to play the No. 1-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 15. 950 ESPN airs its first Penn game of the season the following Tuesday at 10 a.m., when Penn takes on city rival Drexel. That game is part of ESPN's 23-hour marathon of college basketball.

For the fourth year in a row, Brian Seltzer will call the play-by-play while former Quaker player Vince Curran offers analysis.

In addition, all of the Penn men's basketball games can be heard online by purchasing a PSN streaming package. Click here for more information. Fans can get ready for the season by watching current and past episodes of the Penn Men's Basketball All-Access by clicking here.
