Statement Regarding The Feb. 3 Mtn. Television Broadcast of the Wyoming at Air Force Men's Basketball Game

Feb. 3, 2007

DENVER, Colo. - An accident involving the production truck for today's Wyoming at Air Force men's basketball game has altered the production quality of the broadcast, scheduled for 1 p.m. MT on The Mtn.

On Friday, the production crew and truck were en route from Cheyenne, Wyo., into Colorado when 65-mph sustainable winds tore off the roof of the truck, making it inoperable.

Subsequent efforts to obtain a replacement truck of equal capabilities were unsuccessful; however, a small production van was available. This unit has very limited production capabilities, but after consulting with Mountain West Conference officials, a decision was made to broadcast the game with the available equipment.
