March 15, 2013
TUCSON, Ariz. - The University of Arizona baseball game against Oregon State scheduled for 6 p.m. this evening will not be broadcast on the radio as originally scheduled due to a conflict with the men's basketball game tonight in the Pacific Life Pac-12 Tournament.
The men's basketball team is competing against UCLA tonight at 6 p.m. (PDT) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. Network radio coverage of this game on 1290-AM will preempt the broadcast of the baseball game, which is scheduled to begin at the same time.
Depending on the outcome of tonight's hoops contest, the Saturday game between Arizona and Oregon State on the diamond may also be preempted. If the Wildcats basketball team wins tonight, it will advance to the championship game of the tournament on Saturday at 8 p.m. However, if there is no conflict, tomorrow's baseball game will be broadcast beginning at 5:50 p.m. ahead of the 6 p.m. start at Hi Corbett Field.
The series finale between the Beavers and Wildcats is scheduled for Sunday at noon at Hi Corbett Field. The game will be broadcast live on 1290-AM beginning at 11:50 a.m.
Sunday's contest was also originally scheduled to be televised on the Pac-12 Networks, but that is no longer the case. Due to changes in the spring television schedule Sunday's game will not be televised on Pac-12 networks as originally listed.
A complete revised spring sports television including, including Arizona baseball games, is expected to be finalized and released next week.
