XZeroSports will continue to broadcast Nighthawks basketball this year. Announcers Mark Oliver and Nathan Looper return to call the Nighthawks in the team's historic first year of NJCAA play. Beginning in November, home and away games for the men and women's programs will be live-streamed on www.xzerosports.com.
"As a broadcaster, I couldn't be happier to be returning alongside Nathan Looper as the voice of the NPC Nighthawks," Oliver said. "Last year, we laid the groundwork for what this program can be. This year, we look to blow that out of the water and create an exciting experience for Nighthawks fans across the country."
