BYU basketball is on TV all the time. Utah most of the time. Utah State frequently. Weber State every once in a while.
But Westminster College basketball rarely makes TV appearances - at least not on anything other than public-access channels.
Tonight, however, both the men's and women's teams are on Altitude, which is Ch. 61 on Comcast; Ch. 681 on DirecTV and Ch. 410 on Dish.
First up, it's a women's college basketball game - Westminster at Carroll College (5:30 p.m. Altitude). The Westminster women, 24-2, are on a 16-game winning streak. The Griffins are 13-0 in the Frontier Conference and have already clinched their fifth-straight championship. Carroll (11-3) is in second place.
There is one other women's game tonight - Portland at BYU (7 p.m., BYUtv).
Then it's a men's college basketball game - also Westminster at Carroll College (8 p.m., Altitude). The Griffin men are 20-7 overall and 7-6 in the Frontier Conference play. Carroll College, which is in Helena, Mont., is 1-13.
There are two other men's basketball games tonight - BYU at St. Mary's (8 p.m., ESPN2) and Utah at Colorado (8 p.m., P12N).
