Newman women’s basketball on national television

TASHA CANNON

Big things going on at Newman tomorrow – the Jets’ women’s team takes on St. Edward’s at 12:30 p.m. in a nationally-televised game on CBS College Sports Network.

That’s Ch. 260 on Cox, Ch. 613 on DirecTV and Ch. 152 on Dish. Admission is free, which is awesome, and the first 1,500 fans get a free red t-shirt.

Still, there’s more. Newman is hosting a party at 10:30 AM that’s also free to the public.

The Jets are 11-7 overall and 2-1 in Heartland Conference play – in second after last night’s loss to Texas-Permian Basin – and have a really nice team. Here’s an article I wrote that came out Tuesday about their hot start and some of the adversity the Jets and first-year coach Jaime Green have dealt with this year. Newman has 3 big-time players in Tasha Cannon, Rhea Codio and Philicia Kelly that are all among the elite players in the Heartland right now. St. Edward’s has opened 1-2 in Heartland play.

I’m also pretty sure this guy will be there tomorrow, too. I’m working on a story for tomorrow’s paper on the game and hopefully it’ll be up tonight online … (UPDATE) and here it is.
