MWC: Media Slam TV Simulcast

By David Scott - October 25, 2006

LAS VEGAS – CSTV’s live coverage of the Mountain West Conference’s “Media Slam” is underway and Hang Time is with you from the Green Room off-set at media day headquarters, in the Aladdin Hotel.

Basically, here's how it works: You watch, we blog.

The MWC, you should know, is only the league in the country that has its CSTV preview show covering both the men’s and women’s teams – a full three hours of hoop heaven for MWC fans.

Several of the men’s players and coaches are trickling in and first up is Air Force and senior forward Jacob Burtschi with the Falcons’ assistant coach, Derrick Clark, filling in for head coach Jeff Bzdelik who had to tend to a family emergency.

* Hosting the MWC media slam on-site in vegas is Seth Davis and former coach Steve Lappas, both of whom were quizzing each other on MWC trivia a few moments before air time.

* Just an update on our planned meeting with Coach Jerry Tarkanian: The Shark has a prior commitment tonight, a fund-raiser for son Danny (see previous post). Coach, who is leaving town tomorrow morning, apologized profusely as his TV commercial taping ran way-long today. He promised to get with us when we’re next in town and we promised to still vote for Danny – albeit as a write-in in our home-state of Massachusetts.

Coach quizzed us on how practice went and was encouraged when we told him Wendell White looked very good in the action we saw.

* Stellar effort by UNLV Sports Information Director, Andy Grossman, who delivered us a 2006-07 media guide, fresh off the presses.
