Beaumont- All home Lamar University men’s and women’s basketball games will be

streamed live for free this season on Lamar’s athletic Web site,

“This will give people everywhere the opportunity to watch the Cardinals,” said Clint Burges, Lamar’s video coordinator. This is a huge step for the university.”

This is the first year that Lamar has video streamed athletic

events. All home football games this season are streamed, and one home

women’s soccer game was streamed. Burges hopes to stream home baseball

games this spring.

“I’m excited about the possibilities,” Burges said. “Next season,

we hope to include all home volleyball and soccer games. There’s even a

possibility that we could stream road games in the future.”

The video feed will be enhanced by play-by-play commentary from

Lamar’s announcers. For men’s games, Lamar will add the feed from the

university’s flagship station, KLVI, featuring the longtime voice of the

Cardinals, Dave Hofferth.

For women’s games, KLVI News Director Harold Mann, who is also

the play-by-play voice of the football Cardinals, will be providing

people will take advantage of this opportunity. It’s a great way for

parents, alumni and boosters across the country and the world to see the

Cardinals in action.”

on the schedule for men’s or women’s basketball and click on the
