PHILADELPHIA - Saint Joseph's Athletics will offer Hawk fans the opportunity to see the upgraded video production that was introduced this season on by providing live video streaming free of charge for three of the final four men's basketball home games.

Fans can now view three SJU home games - Feb. 5 vs. Massachusetts; Feb. 26 vs. St. Bonaventure; and March 2 vs. Richmond - on Hawks All-Access without purchasing a subscription. Click here to watch.

The SJU athletic department made a commitment this year to create a broadcast-quality stream of both men's and women's basketball games. To do so, SJU utilized the technology that was installed in Hagan Arena during the renovation project while also investing resources into the purchase of more cameras and a Tri-Caster, which incorporates graphics into the production. SJU also hired a director to oversee the production and coordinate all four camera angles during the game.

On each broadcast, play-by-play announcer Matt Martucci and color analyst Joe Lunardi appear on camera for pre-game and halftime analysis.

Viewers are reminded that to obtain the highest quality broadcast, the viewing computer must meet a number of system requirements, including sufficient memory and hard drive space, as well as Adobe Flash Player. It may be necessary to defragment the computer and delete temporary internet files that could slow down the stream. For the complete list of system requirements, and other frequently asked questions, go to the CBS College Sports Network website or click here.
