How to watch CIF State basketball championship games

By Bee Sports Staff

If you can't make it to Sleep Train Arena for this weekend's CIF State basketball championships featuring the Pleasant Grove High School boys in Division I, options for following the 12 games are limited, for the most part, to streaming online. Watch it here.

Time Warner Cable, which has exclusive rights to the tournament, is broadcasting games on Time Warner Cable Sports Net, based in Southern California. Most TV providers in the Sacramento area - including Comcast Cable, Dish Network and Surewest - don't offer the channel. DirecTV subscribers can get the channel, but only in the top tier packages.

No local radio stations are airing the game.

Tickets start at $16 for general admission ($10 for seniors, students and children) for each of the four sessions. There are four games in the early session each day and two in the evening session.
