XM Has Hoops Conference Tourneys Covered

XM Satellite Radio said it will air men's college basketball tournaments for the six major conferences starting Wednesday for listeners nationwide.

Given that it's the official satellite radio network for the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10 and SEC, the coverage on XM this month marks the first time the company has carried all six tournaments, the satellite radio service said.

The Big East and Pac-10 tournaments will air nationwide on XM March 12-15. The ACC, Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC tourneys will air March 13-16.

The tournaments can be heard live on 10 college sports play-by-play channels. If that wasn't enough, XM Sports Nation channel (channel 144) will air talk shows from tournament cities, the company said.
