Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union (ETFCU) and the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation (EVSC) held a news conference on Thursday where they announced a new way for fans to watch live school sports from the safety of their own homes.

A plan hatched by EVSC that's being sponsored by ETFCU will now allow fans to watch live sporting events at any athletic event in any of the five EVSC gyms.

EVSC Athletics Director Andy Owen was at the press conference and explained that the school corporation had been looking into installing special HUDL cameras in each EVSC gym since June, which will now be used to live stream the events. 

With restrictions put in place on in-person attendance for winter sports, officials say the new streaming opportunity is a way to allow spectators to safely see the sports events from the safety and comfort of their own homes.

Through the new streaming option, fans who miss the live showing of the sports event will be able to watch recorded footage of it.

For those wanting to watch, the streaming service is completely free, as ETFCU is covering the rights fees for the IHSAA and subscription fees at IHSAATV.org. This allows parents and fans to view events on smartphones, tablets, etc. all the way through March of 2021.

The first game streamed will be a girl's basketball game featuring Harrison and Mater Dei.

Schedules for future events that will be streamed can be found at ihsaatv.org/evsc

This agreement will feature post-season action as well, as long as the event is at Harrison, Bosse, Central, North, or Reitz.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
