The Mtn. – MountainWest Sports Network will present an insider’s look into the Colorado State men’s basketball team and the UNLV women’s basketball squad this season with two new original programs: Season Pass: Colorado State Men’s Basketball and Season Pass: UNLV Women’s Basketball.

The first episodes featuring both teams air Thursday, Dec. 30 beginning at 8 p.m. MT.  The CSU men’s team and UNLV women’s team will each have seven episodes dedicated to their respective program.

“We are extremely excited to be back for a third season of Season Pass,” said Colorado State men’s basketball head coach Tim Miles.”  “The past two seasons Rams fans have had a great opportunity to get an inside look at our program.  Our staff and players are constantly working to take this program to the next level, and we are thrilled to continue to share that with The Mtn. viewing audience.”

"I think it's great for UNLV to participate,” added UNLV Athletic Director Jim Livengood.  “I'm excited about it and Kathy (Olivier) is excited about it.  It's a wonderful opportunity to show a lot of teaching and show a lot of other things. Some people tend to evaluate things in a left-right column; did you win or did you lose? But we know college athletics is about much more than that."

Said UNLV women’s basketball head coach Kathy Olivier: "We’re very proud that the UNLV Lady Rebels have been chosen to be featured for this year's program. It's a unique opportunity for us to showcase our university and our team. We have a great group of ladies and I'm excited that our fans and viewers of The Mtn. will be able to see the growth of the program since I arrived here in Las Vegas two summers ago.

"This is a chance for us to show what goes on behind the scenes in a collegiate women's basketball program. It'll show how much balance our players must have as student-athletes, in terms of both their academics and also the athletic side. We have several outstanding storylines surrounding our players that we hope to show as the season goes on."

Both shows are a continuation under a more appropriate title of The Mtn.’s successful original program, Reaching the Peak, which in past seasons has featured the TCU baseball team, Colorado State men’s basketball and football teams, and the Wyoming football team. Each show provides viewers an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look into athletic programs across the Mountain West Conference that delves into the lives of the student-athletes.

Season Pass will follow both programs from the first days of practice through the 2011 Conoco Mountain West Conference Basketball Championships. 

Unique elements from the prior seasons will return in Season Pass: Colorado State Men’s Basketball, including Miles a Minute, Player Profiles (“The Roster”) and The Rams' GlossaryPlayer Profiles and The Lady Rebels Glossary will apply to Season Pass: UNLV Women’s Basketball.  Both shows will incorporate a player version of Coach ‘em Up called This Is My Game, which features different players demonstrating a how-to on various on-court techniques.

Additional web-only segments will be available throughout the season exclusively at www.themtn.tv.
