For the second time in three years, the fourth time in the past 11 years, and the eighth time overall, the Oklahoma Baptist University Bison are in the NAIA Division 1 Basketball Championship Game. OBU will face Concordia University (Calif.) at 7 p.m. CDT tonight. OBU is the #2 seed and Concordia is the #4 seed. The Bison topped Mountain State (W.Va.) 77-56 on Monday night. Concordia knocked off top-seeded Shorter (Ga.), 81-67 in the other semifinal game.
Audio broadcast of the game, with John Parrish on play-by-play, will be carried on Shawnee's KGFF AM 1450 and over the web through links at www.obubison.com.
Tonight's game is being televised nationally by the CBS Sports Network. The cable channel is not offered by Allegiance in Shawnee. It is offered by DISH Network and DIRECTV. However, if you have one of those providers, you may need to upgrade your channel package to get CBS Sports Network. You can follow this link http://www.cbssportsnetwork.com/ and use the "Channel Finder" box in the lower right corner to check availability.
The folks at Buffalo Wild Wings at Shawnee Mall will be carrying the CBS Sports Network telecast, as they did in 2010.
