UK Men's Basketball

CBSSports.com will stream five UK games live online

CBSSports.com announced Thursday that it will stream regular-season college basketball games for the first time this season, and Kentucky will be featured in almost half the contests being offered.

The inaugural live-streaming broadcast will be Saturday's Kentucky-Indiana showdown in Rupp Arena.

A total of 11 games from CBS Sports' schedule of Southeastern Conference games will be made available live and free of charge on the network's Web site this season. One non-SEC game — Army at Navy — also will be offered.

CBSSports.com also will show the SEC Championship Game live on March 15.

CBSSports.com previously offered live streaming of NCAA Tournament games, but this marks the Web site's first foray into the regular season.

The regular-season broadcasts are a result of the 15-year contract extension CBS Sports reached with the SEC last August.e_SClBTickets available for Indiana game
