Big Ten Net Names Trio for College Basketball Coverage
The Big Ten Network named three former conference hoops figures as its announcing team for the college basketball season.
Former Purdue coach Gene Keady, two-time Big Ten player of the year Jimmy Jackson and former Northwestern star Tim Doyle will join host Dave Revsine in the studio during the network’s coverage of basketball double-headers.
The trio also will serve as analysts for some game broadcasts and will appear regularly on “Big Ten Tonight.”
“Given their individual experiences, we think each member of this team can provide unique insight and perspective,” said executive producer Leon Schweir. “We have a coach who spent 25 years in the Big Ten, a player who in his conference career and for 14 years afterwards competed against some of the best players in the world and someone who played in the Big Ten as recently as last year. We’re excited to have three individuals with such outstanding Big Ten basketball credentials.”
