According to the game notes for Thursday afternoon’s match-up between UofL and Long Beach State, former Cardinal star Luke Hancock will be making his broadcasting debut for the ACC Network Extra.
Four of Louisville’s first five games (exhibitions included) haven’t been televisied. Instead they’ve been carried digitally by the ACC’s Network Extra. The broadcasts can be found on ESPN3.com as well as the Watch ESPN app.
For the first three games on the ACC Network Extra, WAVE3’s Kent Taylor has served as the play-by-play announcer for the while Jody Demling has done the color commentary. Demling is currently in Houston for the Cardinal football game for sideline reporter duties.
Hancock will be filling in for Demling. The voice of the Cards, Paul Rogers, is also in Houston, therefore Nick Curran will fill in as the play-by-play announcer on 840 WHAS. Curran was recently named the play-by-play announcer for the UofL women’s basketball team.<
