Access Sacramento Game-of-the-Week

After 10 premiere football games, The Home Town Sports Game-of-the-Week moved indoors during the weekend to begin its winter coverage of high school basketball with a pair of outstanding match-ups at the annual “Christian Brothers Girls Holiday Classic.”

GOTWlogo_pngThe twin bill tips-off with Monterey Trail battling Nevada Union in the tourney’s 3rd Place game on Friday, December 13th, at 7 p.m. on Comcast/SureWest Cable Channel 17.

The second game to air is the championship contest featuring the centerpiece of the tourney, the nationally-renowned St. Mary’s of Stockton squaring-off with McClatchy at approximately 8:30 p.m.

This coming weekend, Game of the Week coverage moves on Dec. 14 to Carmichael to televise a pair of choice match-ups in the annual Father Barry Holiday Classic at Jesuit High School.  One game each will be presented on Tuesday, December 17th and December 20th at 7 p.m.

On Saturday, December 21st, the Game of the Week crew’s coverage of 2013 concludes with another deluxe boys basketball double-header, this time from the St. Hope Elite Hoop Classic at Sacramento High School.  Those two games will air, one game on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24 at 7 p.m. and the next on Friday, Dec. 27 at 7p.m.

The crew will take the balance of 2013 off, before resuming coverage the first week of January, 2014.
