Jaguar Basketball Teams to Live Stream All Home Games

The winter sports season has begun at Governors State University and it will have a different look for the men’s and women’s basketball teams.

The men’s squad opened its 2020-21 campaign on October 23 with the Jaguars Tip-Off Classic, an event that was held without spectators at the Athletics and Recreation Center. No fans will be allowed at home games this season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

GSU basketball fans, however, can watch home games on-line as Digital Learning and Media Design (DLMD) will produce live video streams for the fifth-straight year. All home broadcasts are free of charge and available at

"While we will miss having our fans in the stands, we are grateful to have our games video streamed on the internet," said Bates, who also serves as GSU's Director of Athletics. "DLMD has been doing our games since the 2016-17 season and have done a great job producing some of the best video broadcasts in the NAIA."

Tony Bates' men's squad returns nine players from last season, including All-CCAC Honorable Mention forward DeAndrey Robinson II. The Jaguars begin a 14-game conference schedule on January 2 having qualified for the CCAC postseason tournament three years in a row.

The women's team, picked seventh in the CCAC preseason coaches' poll, opens its campaign on November 5 at home against IU Kokomo. Head Coach Tonishea Mack welcomes back the program's all-time leading scorer and rebounder in Amber Brooks, who did not play last year due to injury. GSU, which made its first postseason appearance in 2019-20, will begin conference play on January 2.

In other Jaguars sports news, the women’s and men’s cross country teams just completed their third week of competition and now prepare for the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships on November 7. The only fall sports teams in action at GSU, cross country will close its abbreviated seasons at the CCACs.
