Lauren Hill’s first game to be streamed nationally
CINCINNATI — Lauren Hill’s first college basketball game will be streamed nationally and televised on regional sports networks.
The freshman for Division III Mount St. Joseph has inoperable brain cancer, and the NCAA allowed its season opener to be moved up to Sunday so she can play before her condition worsens.
The matchup with Hiram College at Xavier’s 10,000-seat arena will be available for free on Fox Sports Go online and through the app, even for users who usually can’t access the service. Fox announced Friday the game will also air on Fox Sports Regional Networks, including in Ohio, and Fox College Sports.
The Big East is producing the game, which starts at 2 p.m. EST.
