Center Valley, Pa. – The Patriot League has partnered with SIRIUS Satellite Radio to broadcast select men’s basketball
games for the 2006-07 season, it was announced Friday. Ten Patriot League men’s regular-season basketball “Games of the
Week” will be broadcast live to SIRIUS’ nationwide audience, beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 9 with American at Bucknell on
SIRIUS channel 107. In addition to regular-season coverage, all seven games of the 2007 Patriot League Men’s Basketball
Tournament will be aired. Additional games may be added to the Patriot League’s package with SIRIUS over the course of
the season.

"The Patriot League is pleased to be associated with SIRIUS Satellite Radio. The addition of the Patriot League to SIRIUS'
outstanding sports lineup will serve to further expand the visibility of the League and its member institutions," said Patriot
League Executive Director Carolyn Schlie Femovich. "The Patriot League has student-athletes from across the country, and
partnering with SIRIUS provides us with a wonderful vehicle to make Patriot League basketball available to our growing
national audience."

SIRIUS is the exclusive satellite radio broadcaster of the Patriot League and the Official Satellite Radio Partner of the Patriot

faithfully by alumni and fans who are spread all over the country. With SIRIUS, those fans will be able to tune in and listen
live from anywhere in the U.S.”

Veteran broadcaster Frank Santore will handle the play-by-play duties for the Patriot League package. Santore has an
extensive announcing resume in college basketball, including serving as the play-by-play voice for Davidson and Gardner-
