EAST LANSING, Mich. – Feb. 1 –
Just in time for the upcoming winter tournament season, the MHSAA.tv website is sporting a new look to help viewers better navigate the 5,000-plus (and growing) number of events available.

Powered by PlayON! Sports, visitors to MHSAA.tv will be able to quickly navigate between available MHSAA Network produced and school-produced content; look at upcoming events; and quickly head to live events as they take place.  During the winter tournament season, the MHSAA Network will produce nearly 350 hours of live streaming content on MHSAA.tv from the Finals of eight different tournaments.

One of the other new features of the redesigned website will give viewers the opportunity to let their friends know about an online event through Twittler, Facebook and Google+.

Game Night on the MHSAA Network this week features a Cascades Conference showdown from last week when Napoleon traveled to Michigan Center in girls basketball, and the Cardinals avenged a loss earlier in the season at the hands of the Pirates in a 44-36 victory.
