MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Memphis head coach John Calipari has been saying for the last couple of weeks that all Tiger basketball games will be televised, and now it's official.

Memphis is scheduled to appear regionally on Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS) seven times and locally on WLMT/CW 30 six times.

The local WLMT/CW 30 (channel 8 on the Comcast basic cable package) slate tips off Nov. 16 with the Tigers' season opener versus Jackson State. Game time is 7:00 p.m. (CT) at FedExForum.
