FARGO — The Summit League says 26 men's and women's basketball games will be produced and televised regionally by Midco Sports Network this season.

Twenty-two of the broadcasts also will air on national cable TV partner FOX College Sports. Coverage will be spread across all eight weeks of the schedule, and all 10 men's and women's quarterfinal and semifinal games at the league championships will be part of the national schedule.

Summit League Commissioner Tom Douple says the televised games will showcase the Summit League brand and increase the amount of exposure for teams and athletes.

North Dakota State and South Dakota State, last season's men's finalists, meet on Saturday, Jan. 25. Last year's women's finalists, South Dakota and South Dakota State, square off on Sunday, Feb. 2.
