The YES Network, home of New York Yankees baseball and New Jersey Nets basketball, plans to run episodes of the classic high-school basketball series “The White Shadow” on Sundays beginning Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. (ET).

The cable network has acquired the rights to 40 episodes of the show, which originally aired from 1978 to 1981 on CBS.

“Shadow” stars Ken Howard as a former Chicago Bulls player, forced by injuries to retire, who becomes the basketball coach at an urban high school in South Central Los Angeles.
