This is pretty cool, a definite increase in exposure for the tourney this year! I just saw this release:



WCC MEN’S BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL TO BE BROADCAST NATIONALLY ON WESTWOOD ONE

SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The West Coast Conference, a property of IMG-College, announced today that its men’s basketball tournament final, to be played on March 6 at the Orleans Arena, will be broadcast nationally on Westwood One Radio. It is the first time that a WCC conference tournament game will be carried on national terrestrial radio. The final game of the conference tournament is part of a larger agreement that IMG-College has entered into nationally at a number of its properties.

“We are excited that IMG has extended this agreement with Westwood One to include the West Coast Conference,” said Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich. “This agreement is indicative of the national media attention that our conference continues to garner and will help us extend the WCC brand nationally.”
