We are thrilled that many of our fans will have access to another CST broadcast for a game that means so much, said Hornets President Hugh Weber. We are grateful for the tremendous partnership shared for so many years at CST and know our fans will appreciate the local broadcast exposure with announcers such as Bob, Gil and Victor that they have become so accustomed to hearing.

We are excited with the opportunity to bring Hornets fans one of the first round match-ups with the Lakers stated CST head Rod Mickler. It has been another great year of Hornets basketball on CST and like all Hornets fans around the Gulf South, we hope for a long run in the playoffs!

The 2010-11 season marked the ninth season of Hornets basketball on CST. Once again, CST provided Hornets fans with a 65-game regular season broadcast schedule.

CST and the Hornets also offer fans a chance to become a part of the action. Fans can get inside information and become a part of the broadcast via Twitter. By following @HornetsOnCST, fans can interact with Howell, CSTs Hornets insider, and possibly get their tweets read live on the air.
