Ball State Sports Link returns to live productions on ESPN3 this weekend as the No. 15 Ball State Men’s Volleyball team hosts Saint Francis and Penn State at Worthen Arena.
Both matches, slated for a 7:00 p.m. start, will be streamed live on ESPN 3, available in the ESPN and the WatchESPN apps and on DIRECTV.
The two matches are part of a Sports Link’s program-record five men’s volleyball matches televised to an ESPN platform this year, plus add to a 15-match broadcast package on SL Digital Radio.
The team’s four seniors – David Siebum, Parker Swartz, Lem Turner and Adam Wessel – will be honored before the Penn State match Saturday.
Sports Link’s weekend talent team features freshman Ryan Klimcak and senior Alex Thomas on the call.
Freshman Faith Denig is directing, while junior Luke Foster is the technical director.
