The Quarterfinals of the MHSAA Boys Basketball Tournament, presented by Sparrow Health, will have live streaming video on the MHSAA.tv website Tuesday (March 21).
A $9.95 subscription will allow for live viewing of Tuesday’s Quarterfinals, plus Semifinal action on Thursday and Friday (March 23-24) from the Breslin Center in East Lansing, and other live content on the NFHS Network for a 30-day period.
Most of the Quarterfinal games are being produced by participants in the MHSAA’s School Broadcast Program. Here’s the complete schedule, with the producing SBP schools in parentheses:
Coverage of all games will be single camera with graphics. SBP produced games also may include their own announcers.
In its eighth year, the School Broadcast Program gives members an opportunity to showcase excellence in their schools by creating video programming of athletic and non-athletic events, with students gaining skills in announcing, camera operation, directing/producing and graphics.
The program also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.
All sporting events – live or delayed – are available on a subscription basis only for their first 72 hours online. They become available for free, on-demand viewing approximately 72 hours following their completion. A portion of every subscription sold by a school goes to benefit its program. A complete list of participating schools can be found on the School Broadcast Program page of the MHSAA Website.
Schools interested in becoming a part of the School Broadcast Program should contact John Johnson at the MHSAA Office.
