INDIANAPOLIS – ButlerSports.com will team with students from the Butler University College of Communications to webcast all 14 home women's basketball games during the 2013-14 season.

Students from the Butler University College of Communication produced 12 Butler fall sports webcasts for football, men's and women's soccer, and volleyball. Last season, the group produced all home football and women's basketball games. This feature will once again be free of charge on ButlerSports.com.

"It's exciting to be able to provide a real world sports production environment that gives students throughout the College of Communication the opportunity to gain valuable experience and at the same time produce content for Butler sports fans around the globe," said Multimedia Coordinator Eric Esterline.  Esterline, College of Communication Instructor Scott Bridge, and Associate Professor Christine Taylor supervise BU students with all aspects of the fall sports productions.  Gary Edgerton is Dean of the College of Communication.

The first women's basketball webcast will feature the Bulldogs hosting Cleveland State in the 2013-14 regular season opener. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Hinkle Fieldhouse.
