Watch Party for Men's Basketball Matchup


from JSU Sports Information

Jacksonville State will host a watch party for its NCAA Tournament First Round game against the Auburn Tigers on Friday, March 18, at Pete Mathews Coliseum.

For Gamecock fans not making the trip to Greenville, SC, JSU invites you to cheer on the team from the "Home of the Gamecocks," right inside The Pete. With live video of the marquee matchup featured on both arena videoboards, fans can share in the excitement just as they would for any home game.

JSU will open the coliseum at 11:15 a.m. on Friday morning, with the game set to tip-off at 11:40 a.m. The event is free and open to the public, and concessions will be available. JSU's game airs on TruTV (ch. 73 on campus, ch. 246 DirectTV, 242 Dish) and will be covered by the CBS crew of Jim Nantz, Bill Raftery, Grant Hill and Tracy Wolfson. 

In addition to the watch party at Pete Mathews Coliseum, there will be several watch parties  hosted by JSU Alumni chapters across the Southeast.
