What channel is the Shocker game on? Here’s some help for the MVC Tournament

Wichita State fans who don’t go to St. Louis can watch the Shockers on Fox Sports Kansas City and, if they advance, CBS Sports Network and CBS.

▪  Wichita State pep rallies start two hours before each game in the Landmark Ballroom at the Marriott St. Louis Grand (800 Washington Ave.).

▪  Friday’s games are on Fox Sports Kansas City. That means they are blacked out in the MVC footprint on ESPN3.com.

Foxsportsgo.com, which works like ESPN3.com, is the best bet for online watching.

The Eagle’s Paul Suellentrop visits with Illinois State beat writer Jim Benson of the Pantagraph to talk about a few Arch Madness scenarios that involve MVC co-champs Illinois State and Wichita State.

Derrick Docket of the MVC helpfully explains how best to watch the Shockers this weekend.

▪  Dish Network will show both MVC quarterfinals Friday night on 444 and 412-32. DirecTV will carry quarterfinals 3 and 4 in HD only.

▪ Saturday’s semifinals tip at 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. That changed last season.

▪ The change in time is for CBS Sports Network, which will televise Saturday’s semifinals for the second year.

If you do not have CBS Sports Network, now is the time to plan. CBS Sports Network is Cox 260, DirecTV 221, Dish 158 and U-Verse 643.

That means Saturday’s games are not available on ESPN3.com.

▪  Mitch Holthus, Kevin Lehman and Tom Ackerman will broadcast Friday’s WSU game.

▪  Saturday’s semifinal TV crew is Brent Stover, Bob Wenzel and John Schriffen.

▪  Sunday’s final goes to Kevin Harlan, Dan Bonner and Schriffen.
