COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio Athletic Conference has finalized a new endeavor that will showcase the conference's men's and women's basketball programs with the introduction of the OAC Game of the Week.

Through a partnership with NKTelco, the conference will webcast eight Wednesday games throughout the 2018-19 basketball seasons with four men's games and four women's games. The webcasts will utilize three high-definition cameras and HD webstreams will be free of charge.

Per conference guidelines, both the Capital men's and women's teams will be featured once. Capital Men's Basketball will be in the spotlight on Jan. 16 when the Crusaders travel to Heidelberg University in the fourth edition of the series. Capital Women's Basketball will then be featured on Jan. 30 at Marietta College in a showdown with the Pioneers.

As part of the series, each OAC program will be featured once. Broadcaster information will be provided at a later date and links to the Capital games will be accessible on the Capital Athletics website as soon as they are available. In addition to the Game of the Week, NKTelco will webcast the men's and women's championship games on Saturday, Feb. 23.
