Ohio Valley to make courtside replays available at all conference games

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. -- The Ohio Valley Conference announced
Friday it will make courtside replay available during all games
played in conference venues starting in January.

Courtside monitors are usually only available to officiating
crews during televised games. The NCAA regulates how replays may be
used during games.

"OVC games are too competitive and we have too much invested to
not utilize every means available to ensure our officials have
every tool necessary," Ohio Valley commissioner Jon A.
Steinbrecher said. "We owe this to our student-athletes, coaches
and fans."

The OVC Board of Directors of Athletics will discuss details of
the replay system during a Jan. 3 meeting in Nashville, Tenn.
